Cardiff University Music Society is back, and this time we’re bigger and better than ever before.
We here at Music Society HQ have got big plans for an epic year of events, concerts, competitions and general greatness. Kicking off with our traditional White T-Shirt Social on the first Tuesday of freshers’ week, all through the year to the Annual Ball this Spring, you’ll never be short of something amazing to get involved with this year at MuSoc- and you don’t have to be a Music student to join either!
The committee this year have a specific goal: to make the Music Society the best it can be for members, which is why this year we are putting our heads together to come up with the best ideas for the society. 2016-17 will see the return of MuSoc Sport and Open Mic night, as well as continuing with the success stories of recent years such as the Soloist Competition. We’re bringing in some new ideas as well, from the Grade 1-athon to the Mums and Dads scheme, and of course a multitude of socials. With all this, we’ve got something you’re sure to enjoy; whether you’re into honing your art, meeting likeminded people or just having a laugh.
By joining MuSoc, you have access to join any of our respected ensembles. From the auditioned, award-winning Wind Orchestra to the formidable Palestrina Singers, we’ve got you covered no matter what you play or sing. We’re holding a mini Music Freshers Fair for our ensembles and affiliated societies this Freshers Week to showcase what we have on offer, so make sure to come and take a look on Wednesday 21st September!
In case you missed the launch of our brand new website earlier this month, you can go and check it out at www.musicsocietycardiff.com. Here you can find out about everything we do, and learn more about us as a society. If you have any questions, you can submit them through the site, email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet us at @MuSocCdf. Speaking of social media, we’ve also started up a brand new Instagram account, @musicsocietycardiff, where we post information and fun pictures, and you can also add us on Snapchat at musoccardiff to get all the updates. Don’t forget to like our Facebook page, and once you’ve joined as a member of Music Society you will be added to our freshers and members page!
Lastly, make sure to save the date for Saturday 24th September! To finish off an amazing Freshers Week we’re planning a monumental Flash Mob to take place in Cardiff. This is a Give it a Go event so you can join up on the SU website! Add us on social media for updates on the Flash Mob (and more) closer to the date.
