About Us

The Music Society is one of the largest societies at the University of York, with around 500 active members and events happening every week.

We organise concerts, music talks, society balls, and socials. We also have fantastic Practice Rooms, located in Derwent College, for our members only. We also provide affordable instrumental lessons, offer lesson bursaries, and can help source instruments on which to practise.

We want as many people as possible to make the most of what we have to offer. If you love music, get involved and make music happen!
