Big Band

Big Band plays a range of jazz, swing, blues and Latin styles. Led expertly by the highly sought-after professional percussionist Dae Lee, and consisting of approximately 20-25 players, the Big Band plays a range of gigs throughout the year for entertainment and dancing, for example at our Students Union and the annual Big Band Big Lunch.

Entry requirements:

  • Everyone is welcome to join. Rhythm section instruments will be required to meet with Dae prior to the first rehearsal.
  • Musicians should be reasonably confident sight-reading and performing a part by themselves.
  • Membership levels are determined by the number of instrument chairs available in a standard big band line-up.

As one of the UoR’s premier ensembles, members of Big Band should be prepared to commit to arriving punctually and attending every rehearsal unless there is a valid reason approved by the director in advance.
