important people (you!) have a truly memorable experience being part of such a
dynamic, vibrant and successful society. Alongside our Half Palatinate award
for Society of the Year (2018-2019) and many other accolades, we’ve gone from
strength to strength so far; come and chat to us at the Freshers fair to find
out what we’ve got in store for 2019-2020!
Hi, I’m Eloise and I am a third year studying Maths at Hild Bede. I have been
playing clarinet in DUCB for the last two years and am now the Treasurer for this
academic year. My role involves budgeting for the band, keeping track of the finances
and making sure there is enough money for biscuits! I am really looking forward to
getting more involved in Concert Band and can’t wait for this coming year.
Hello, my name is Cécile, and I am the secretary for DUCB this year. My role

Heya my name’s Joe. I’m at Durham
studying Geophysics with Geology and the Concert Manager for DUCB. As the name
suggests, I manage the concerts, booking venues, organising people, and making

coaching Hild’s women’s rugby. With some great concerts already in the
pipeline, this year is looking to be one not to miss!

Hi! I'm Douglas, I'm a 3rd year physicist from Trevs, and I'm thrilled to be
one of Concert Band's conductors this year. Between us, Thomas and I choose the
repertoire for the band and run rehearsals with the goal of producing some
fantastic concerts and making Concert Band the best way to spend a Sunday
afternoon. I played in my county's wind band for several years at home and have
played in a whole range of ensembles in Durham. Whether you'll be playing or
applauding, I hope you enjoy Concert Band this year!
