Reading University Music Society (RUMS) is one of the largest societies

belonging to Reading University Student's Union.

We offer a wide range of musical ensembles, suitable for players and singers

of all standards, run by both students and professionals. We also actively encourage our members to conduct and/or start new ensembles.


We are always keen to welcome new members who enjoy making

music in a fun and friendly environment. So if you're interesting in joining or just want to find out more, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

RUMS membership is open to students for £10 a year and non-students for £12

a year. This allows you to join an unlimited number of ensembles and choirs.


We hold at least one concert each term, showcasing our diverse range of ensembles and all the hard work (and fun!) that we put in. We also hold fantastic socials, which provide wonderful opportunities to meet new people and make new friends. We hope to see you soon!
