The Edinburgh University Music Society has performed concerts for over one hundred and forty years. We have performed hugely popular pieces, most recently including (though not exclusively) Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony and Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastic Scheherazade. We have also showcased numerous specially commissioned or new pieces, engaging our players in the more contemporary realms of classical music.
No matter what pieces we are playing, you can be assured that we will be enjoying every minute of the performance, and we hope that you as an audience will be too!
We also run many social events for our members, allowing us to get to know each other a little better and also to let our hair down away from the stresses of university life… We dance, we sing, and we most certainly have a great time!
