ABUK - Asker and Bærum Youth Winds
Welcome to ABUK's official webpage! Asker and Bærum Youth Winds (Norwegian: Asker og Bærum Ungdomskorps, ABUK) is a wind band for young musicians who want to do more as musicians than they can in the school bands. The band wishes to maintain a high level musically and plays a varied repertoire of both classical wind band music and entertainment music. We are localised in Bærum, Norway and practise every Sunday from 6 pm to 9 pm at Sandvika VGS. At this webpage you will find information about who we are and news about us.
Every year we are participating in the Norwegian National Wind Band Championship (NM). At the 20th of March we performed "Promising Skies" by Robert Smith. ABUK gained the 2nd price in 4th division and the soloist price. You can hear the performance on Spotify or TV2 Sumo!
