As of September 2013, the Oxford University Jazz Orchestra has become an affiliated OUMS Ensemble.
All of us on the OUMS committee are extremely excited to welcome OUJO to the society, ready for the busy Michaelmas term ahead. OUJO is the university’s premiere big band, and are well known from their performances at balls, dinners, and concerts throughout Oxford and beyond. They have twice won the BBC big band award, and they enjoy performing a wide range repertoire with great headliners year upon year. You can have a look at their website to find out more!
What does this mean for OUMS members?
OUMS exists to further the performance and appreciation of music within the University. The affiliation of OUJO means that we can now extend a new musical opportunity to many of our members. Wind, percussion and brass players participating in the Michaelmas OUMS auditions are encouraged to consider also auditioning for OUJO. You can find information about the OUJO auditions on by visiting their website.
All OUMS members can also be sure to hear about OUJO concerts in good time through the OUMS newsletter – OUJO perform at least three sell-out performances a year, and we will be sure to give you ample notice to get your tickets!
A warm welcome to all OUJO players and audiences!
