Welcome to The Modern Music Society

The society is aimed at anyone who has an interest in post-1900 music or those who are looking to experience a new way of playing and hearing music. The society is comprised of a Sinfonietta and chamber groups that vary according to the repertoire and perform regularly in concerts throughout the year. The group encourages composers to join as we make a point of engaging with works written from the college’s own students. The diverse possibilities of modern music means that anyone from any musical background can enjoy and share their musical experiences with the society!

Charity Projects and Widening Participation 

We are dedicated to diversifying and decolonising music, increasing the accessibility of music and enabling a diverse body of people to enjoy and learn music. Throughout the year we will be organising charity projects as well as widening participation projects through local partnerships with schools. If you are interested in getting involved with any of these schemes keep an eye on our newsletter and socials or alternatively email [email protected] with the subject title ‘Widening Participation'.

Some of the projects to look forward to include:

  • Charity livestreaming
  • Christmas Carol singing
  • Workshops/tutoring for a local school
  • Charity bake sales
