Two Music Society ensembles return to more traditional and purpose-written music respectively.

The Big Band of the University of St Andrews visits some of the highlights of the big band repertoire. St Andrews’ finest jazz band will play hits such as “Sing, Sing, Sing” by Benny Goodman (the “King of Swing”), “Moanin’” by Charles Mingus and many other classic big band charts. 

The University of St Andrews Wind Band presents a showcase of exciting repertoire written for Wind Band. Playing works by some of the biggest wind band composers of the moment, including Samuel Hazo, Robert W. Smith, and Nigel Hess, the Band will play music inspired by the wild west, the bustling city of London and more.
