Welcome to the Imperial College School of Medicine Music Society. We are the largest traditional society within the medical school, and we hope to cater for any taste you have in music— whether your idol is Alexander Borodin or Axl Rose, we have a group for you. Most importantly, we do our best to get as many people involved as possible, whatever standard you are at – whether you have never sung before in your life, or you are Mozart in the making, you will find happiness in MusicSoc!
In addition to our weekly rehearsals, we have a lively social scene with regular post-rehearsal socials ranging from pub nights by the river, live music events and takeaways at Reynolds. Each year we go on a society-wide weekend away early in November (to escape both work and bustling London). Last year’s took place in Bath, proving to be an excellent venue, and we will soon be plotting this year’s adventures! Every two years we embark on an international tour – we returned from a very successful trip to Malta in July 2018! If you missed it however, don’t worry, because tour 2022 (postponed from 2020…and 2021) is just around the corner…
Besides the jolly social scene we put on eight high quality classical concerts a year, featuring our Orchestra and Choirs, including the opportunity to sing at the Royal Albert Hall for the Imperial graduation ceremonies. Jazz Band and Bands also perform at several gigs throughout the year at various venues.
Our society is also lucky enough to be able to provide some incredible musical opportunities – over 10 years ago we started a new scholarship scheme for one fresher every year, which pays for music lessons for their first three years at Imperial.
