SUJO is the premium big band in Southampton! We are a musical ensemble made up of talented musicians from the university that perform large and small gigs as well as going on tour to notorious international jazz festivals such as Montreux, North Sea and Jazz a Vienne..
These are the current membership plans offered by Jazz Orchestra, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.
Annual Band membership (£40) Membership allows and obliges an individual to partake in all the band's activities. This includes rehearsals and gigs for the year. The member is expected to attend all of these unless a valid reason is given with an appropriate notice period.
