Cambridge University Musical Society is one of the most thriving university music societies in the world.

CUMS consists of a wide variety of ensembles, ensuring there is something for everyone. For instrumentalists, the Society offers two outstanding orchestras: the flagship Cambridge University Orchestra, who perform a variety of symphonic and chamber repertoire with professional conductors and soloists, and the Cambridge University Sinfonia, which is conducted by visiting professionals and the finest student conductors throughout the year. Additionally, Cambridge University Wind Orchestra provides opportunities for wind, brass and percussion players to tackle a challenging and musically diverse repertoire in a sociable environment. For singers, CUMS includes a Symphony Chorus and an elite Chamber Choir, which provide opportunities for singers to perform outside of the Cambridge chapel choir environment.
