We are Cardiff University Healthcare Music Society; a fun and relaxed musical society for anyone who is interested in singing in a choir or playing in an orchestra. We rehearse at times that suit healthcare students, but we are open to anyone, on any course!
Cardiff Healthcare Music Society (HMS) was founded in 2009 and is still going strong! We bring together students who want to enjoy performing music to a high standard in a relaxed atmosphere. Our ensembles play and perform a variety of genres from pop to classical. Some of our favourites being The Pirates of the Caribbean theme, Marriage of Figaro, Phantom of the Opera, Disney medleys, Abba and many more.
We have two main ensembles, our Orchestra, and our Choir, which both rehearse in the University Hospital Wales Chaplaincy (B5). The orchestra meets on a Tuesday at 7pm and the choir meets on a Thursday at 7pm. Rehearsals are from 7-9pm with time for cake and a chat during the evening. There is no audition process, just come along with your singing voices/instrument and join in! We welcome new members at any time.
We host two concerts during the year, our Christmas and Spring concerts, check out the concert vids from last year on our YouTube. These are a great chance for family and friends to see what we have been working on all year. All proceeds from these concerts go to charities of our choice and are a great way to support the community.
As well as rehearsals and performing we have society socials all through the year, from grabbing a drink after rehearsals to film nights, everyone is welcome. Especially to the Christmas meal which is always a highlight.
