ℹ️ About

We are a music society based at the University of Nottingham, working with the local community to raise funds for charity and performance opportunities for students.

Great music

We make some pretty great music. In fact, our Wind Orchestra won a Platinum Award at the NCBF final 2019.

Unauditioned ensembles

We are super keen on people getting involved in making some music. Whether you're interested in instrument-specific ensembles such as Clarinets or Saxophones, or perhaps our largest ensemble β€” Concert Band!

Socials

As well as making some great music, we are all keen to make new friends and socialise. We put on many socials throughout the year, so keep an eye out if you want to join in!

πŸ˜ƒ About Us

[MATT TO REWRITE]

Welcome to Blowsoc! We are a music society for people who play Woodwind, Brass, Percussion, Double Bass, or Big Band Jazz. Blowsoc is happy to welcome anyone who is interested in playing music with us, from those that have never picked up an instrument before to those that have completed diplomas. And we are of course not limited to only Music students β€” in fact three of executive committee members are Mathematicians! Be sure to drop us a message if you’re interested in joining the society or want to find out more about what we do.
