Welcome to the University Music Society, one of the oldest societies at the University of Birmingham.
Thank you for all those who have been involved in playing in ensembles this academic year and helping the society run smoothly throughout this term. We've thoroughly enjoyed entertaining all of you in our concerts, so many thanks for coming to see them!
As we look to the next academic year, don't forget to find us during Welcome Week at the Societies Fair! We will also be at all the University Open Days in June, September and October.
