Put your musical talent into practice

Instrumental ensembles

At present, it will not be possible for our larger instrumental ensembles (Orchestra and Big Band) to rehearse together. However, we hope that there may be opportunities for some smaller group activities in the Student Hall subject to the social distancing regulations governing musical activities. We will aim to organise these according to the interests and abilities of participants and hopefully, this will be an opportunity to explore some new and exciting ensemble possibilities.

Please let us have your questions and ideas via

Orchestra and Band

It is hoped that larger scale ensembles will resume in Semester 2 and membership will be open to all students and staff of BU and AUB. At present, we cannot be sure what form these will take but we will aim to bring together the smaller groups convened in Semester 1 and form ensembles that accommodate everyone’s interests and abilities. We will also maintain broad opportunities for smaller group activities and performances.

String Ensemble

This ensemble is open to students and staff of BU and AUB and ideally, you will need to have reached a standard equivalent to grade 6. We hope that it will be possible to offer some rehearsals during Semester 1, subject to the social distancing regulations governing musical activities.
