Play (Music ;-) )with Others

At present, ensembles include group theory lessons,  3 Bands and 4 Ensembles. Other ensemble and group playing is encouraged and regular concerts are held in and out of College.

The current groups are:-

Ensembles

  • Brass Ensemble
  • Saxophone Ensemble
  • Advanced String Ensemble
  • Beginner String Ensemble

Bands

  • Intermediate Concert Band
  • Advanced Concert Band
  • Big Band
  • Our recently formed Folk Group rehearses on a Tuesday night.
    We also have a group of saxophone fanatics who get together regularly and scope for a flute group subject to numbers wishing to take part.
    We would love to start a childrens choir - please contact us if you are interested!

    The list is fairly fluid as we encourage those with a similar interest to start their own groups.

    Students can enter for practical and theory exams from beginner to diploma lessons.

    End of Term Concert - Saturday 7th July 2012 - With Added ‘Fnugg’

    On Saturday 7th July there will be a free concert at the Huntingdonshire Regional College starting at 19:30 given by some of the ensembles at the music school.

    We also have a new feature - a spot for staff to strut their stuff. Taking the first spotlight is Robin Norman who teaches brass and directs the Senior Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. Not being a wallflower - they don’t tend to suit tubas - Robin is playing ‘Fnug’ which demonstrates some of the many sounds a tuba is capable of including harmonics and beat-boxing. There is more information on this piece on YouTube.

    All members of the public are welcome

    Anyone Fancy Learning the Euphonium - Loan Instrument Available

    HUMSA has a euphonium which is available for loan to anyone who wishes to learn this instrument at the Huntingdonshire Music School. It is part of the brass family and smaller and therefore more practical than the tuba. It is a solo instrument (meaning it often features on its own) and is an important instrument in a brass band although it can be played in a wind band, military band and orchestra so there are a wide variety of styles of music available to the euphonium player. It produces a gorgeous warm sound.

    Famous euphonium players include Nicholas Childs (Black Dyke) his son, David Childs (Cory) and Stephen Mead (Royal Northern College of Music).

    At the moment we have just the one loan instrument available (courtesy of Sean Pagington and First Brass) but if needed we’ll try and obtain more loan instruments.
