Blowsoc logo

Blowsoc is the music society for all Woodwind, Brass, Percussion, Double Bass, and Big Band Jazz players.


We run nine ensembles and aim to provide something for players of all abilities. We have two auditioned ensembles, Wind Orchestra and Moonlighters Big Band as well as seven unauditioned ensembles for all abilities.

Blowsoc combines outstanding music-making with an exciting social calendar topped off with an unforgettable European tour in the Easter break.

Have a look here and also come along and find us at Freshers' Fair for more information and to sign up for auditions! Please email any questions about ensembles, auditions or booking enquiries to
