Enormous congratulations to those of you who have picked up A-Level results today and are looking forward to joining us in Cambridge in a couple of months time. 

Hopefully by virtue of looking at our website, you’re interested in the diverse music scene at the University. CUMS is the foremost music society in Cambridge with regular concerts being performed throughout term time. In recent years, members of CUMS have worked with esteemed conductors such as Sir Mark Elder, Jac van Steen and Sian Edwards. We frequently perform in venues around Cambridge including West Road Concert Hall, King’s College Chapel and Kettle’s Yard. Our ensembles have also toured to Krakow, Tuscany and Amsterdam in recent years. With two symphony orchestras, a wind orchestra, a symphony chorus, chamber choir and more, we provide the highest level of music making in the University alongside a thriving social scene with musicians from a wide range of musical backgrounds.

We are currently planning to perform concerts throughout the 2020-21 season, however we are guided by Government and University restrictions due to COVID-19, and therefore cannot currently confirm details about the upcoming academic year. Please continue to check here on our website and follow our social media channels to hear any updates. Alternatively, feel free to drop me an email me on wr268@cam.ac.uk if you have any questions you have about CUMS!

Will Rose – CUMS Student President and Assistant Conductor 2020-21
