~Join us on Thursday 4th October 2018 for our 'Give It A Go' Band Taster sesstion: 7-9pm in The Stage at HUBS! Bring along your instrument, have a go at playing our new music, and meet other new faces and existing members. If you don't have your instrument with you, still come along - we will have 'auxiliary percussion' for those wanting to get involved, and welcome anyone who would just like to listen and find out more about who we are and what we do!
~We are excited to announce that we will be working with our new sponsor Elegance Music as of September 2018, bringing some great opportunities for SHSU Band and its members!
SHSU Band is a group of friendly and enthusiastic musicians who play various styles of music such as film soundtracks, musical theatre and other popular music, whilst also embracing the classical side.
We are a concert band/small orchestra that rehearses once a week and meets up for frequent socials throughout the year which include music-related activities e.g. visits to see musical theatre, as well as a range of other fun activities e.g. laser quest, meals out, and film nights.
We are a non-auditioned group and welcome anyone who plays an instrument, be it woodwind, brass, strings, percussion! It doesn’t matter what experience you have playing in a band – whether you play very regularly or you haven’t played for years, we will accommodate a range of different abilities.
Of course, we do enjoy performing! We have a regular slot at the Kelham Island Christmas Market, collaborate with Harmonies for concerts both in the Students' Union and the wider community and have recently taken up busking to raise money for the band as well as for charitable causes. In March 2018, we also hosted the first Band Varsity, with a friendly competition against the University of Sheffield's Music Players' Society.
