Mission Statement of the HNU-Band

We are a band of students and HNU staff, all of us are interested in music and want to have fun.

We play at HNU events such as graduation or alumni celebrations.

We choose our pieces together. The repertoire depends on the audience and the event, i.e., we play a mixture of rock, pop and soul to dance by.

We are a classic band with vocals, keyboard, guitar, bass and drums.
We gladly include other instruments such as percussion or winds.

We are looking for musicians who are good at playing their instruments, if possible have already played in a band,  and fit into our team.

During the semester, we rehearse once a week. Tasks also include performances as well as individual practising of our pieces.

At the beginning of a semester, potential members are invited to take part in a rehearsal, date and time to be arranged with the band leader. Two or three  pieces of the current HNU band repertoire must be prepared to present them in an audition with the band.

The band is part of the HNU-cultural programme and participation can be credited as optional course.
