Cambridge University Musical Society is one of the most important and thriving university music societies in the world. CUMS consists of a wide variety of ensembles, ensuring there is something for everyone – ranging from the intense, professional experience of the Symphony Orchestra (CUMS SO) and the Chamber Orchestra (CUCO) to the more relaxed, yet no less ambitious Concert Orchestra and the Wind Orchestra (CUWO). In addition to running these ensembles, CUMS is also affiliated with the Cambridge University Jazz Orchestra and the Cambridge University Percussion Ensemble, and it has close links with the New Music Ensemble.
For singers, there is the CUMS Chorus: a full-scale symphonic chorus conducted by Stephen Cleobury CBE. There is also the Cambridge University Chamber Choir (CUCC), an elite group of singers made up of the University’s top Choral Scholars who perform regularly with other university ensembles under the direction of Martin Ennis and David Lowe.
