Welcome to the website of the Bristol University Music Society! 

BUMS is one of the biggest and most active student societies in Bristol, running a variety of orchestras and other ensembles (both auditioned and non-auditioned), which each rehearse weekly and perform several concerts during the year. We also have an annual tour to a European city every Easter as well as socials throughout the term, culminating with the BUMS Ball at the end of the year. 

Members can participate in any of the ensembles (audition permitting), and are also provided with Chamber Music opportunities, our Composition Network, and free or discounted entry to many concerts as well.


Membership costs £15 for the year.
