Clarinet Choir

We are a fun, friendly group of clarinettists. Our group is non-auditioned and open to all. We play a variety of different repertoire varying from film music, medleys and classical hits! 2017-18 was our first year as a Music Society ensemble and we would love for you to join us as we continue to grow


String Orchestra

Cardiff University Strings is an orchestra catering for all abilities. We meet once a week to rehearse, and have charity concerts at the end of term where music is showcased from a range of genres including film, classical, pop and contemporary!

 


MuSoc Singers

MuSoc Singers is a non-auditioned, mixed voice SATB choir that sings a wide variety of classical and contemporary repertoire. 

It is a no pressure environment, where our main aim is that everyone enjoys what they are singing, but gets to sing at a high quality and standard.

We perform many times throughout the semester, including: lunchtime concerts; end of semester concerts in both semesters to showcase what we have been doing; and joint concerts with other ensembles within the Music Society too.

If you are looking to keep singing during Uni without the stress of auditions and to have a good time whilst doing it, then MuSoc singers is for you!!


Male Voice Choir

The Cardiff University Male Voice Choir is a non-auditioned vocal group for male singers of all experiences and backgrounds. We are an open, relaxed and friendly group who perform a wide selection of repertoire, ranging from popular songs both old and new to traditional Welsh music. The choir provides a fantastic opportunity to experience singing in a group and enhance performance portfolios through regular rehearsals and concerts. Whether you have a background in singing or you just fancy singing some songs for fun, then this is the ensemble for you!

 


Flute Choir

Flute Choir is an excellent ensemble for flautists of all abilities! The music is varied so every member has the chance to be challenged. From first study-flautists to those who have only just started, Flute Choir is a great opportunity to perform and develop skills whilst being surrounded by musicians of the same instrument. We frequently perform entertaining and short pieces in the Lunchtime Concerts as well as aspiring to conquer larger works in the Recital Series. We cover a large range of repertoire and welcome suggestions and arrangements from all members with the same love of flute playing!


The Bella Cantas

Bella Cantas is a choir for upper voices. We’re open to all sopranos and altos, and we sing a wide range of classical music, from renaissance to contemporary. This year we’ll be focusing on female composers to celebrate the centenary of female suffrage, and I’m so excited to get started on some fantastic and under appreciated music! All are welcome regardless of vocal skill or experience; we just want to have a great time making great music. See you in September!


Cardiff Camerata

Camerata is a flexibly sized ensemble who love Baroque music! The ensemble was founded in 2016 to give students an opportunity to play early music. 2017-18 performances have included a concert of Baroque Concerti, including a Brandenburg Concerto and music by Vivaldi and Handel amongst others. The group has also received professional feedback from early music specialists and players given the opportunity to perform with period-style bows.


Cardiff University Concert Orchestra

Come and join Cardiff University’s only permanent student-run Symphony Orchestra! We are the largest Music Society ensemble and explore a great range of the very best orchestral repertoire! We are partly auditioned depending on numbers, and suggest a standard of Grade 5 and above for players taking part. With two exciting concerts planned each year, there is plenty to get involved with!
