In preparation for the National Concert Band Festival, the UWWO arranged a series of workshops to be run by professional musicians - all of which were free for members of the band! The professionals helped all attending in preparing our parts for NCBF, and gave invaluable advice for improving our playing and overall musicianship. We would like to thank the following professional musicians for running these workshops: Flute - Rachel Smith Saxophone - Phil Shotton Brass - Simon
We gave our first concert of the year to a packed Butterworth Hall in the annual free concert, joined by a host of other Warwick Univeristy music societies! This year's theme was 'Now That's What I Call Music', for which we played Klaus Badelt's exhilarating score to Pirates of the Caribbean, followed by Pharrell Williams' Happy. In all it was a wonderful evening for everyone!
