Welcome to Aston University Music Society!

Want to play music and meet like-minded people? Then the Aston University Music Society is for you!

We have a Choir, a Big Band, and an Orchestra.  

For you pianists and percussionists out there we also have two grands, two upright pianos, a Clavinova and a drum kit for your use. So there really is something for everyone!

Whether you are an experienced musician, fancy doing something different or want to ‘blow the dust off your instrument’, then come along!

Our Social & Placement Membership to be part of the society is only £2! For this, you can join our virtual social events and stay in touch until we are able to rehearse in person again. For £10 you will be able to use our pianos, drum kit and practise rooms in the Main Building. Details about booking rooms for practice will be published soon.


Covid-19 update (term 2)

For this reason please email the society to check ( if there have been any updates to the situation regarding access before making any purchase.

In previous years we have held concerts at the end of terms 1 and 2 and hope to do so again when its safe to do so to showcase the talents and hard work of our members, giving you the chance to play and sing, whether as part of one our ensembles or maybe even as a solo artist. Its always a great night for your friends, families and flatmates!

As our University Vice-Chancellor said at one our recent events:

 “It was great to have the University Big Band playing at Charter Dinner this year.  They looked and sounded very professional and it was an excellent opportunity to showcase just what Aston students can do.  It is particularly noteworthy, given that none of our students study music here – this is completely extra-curricular engagement and a real asset to the University.” Alec Cameron, 2019

With that in mind it would be standard practice that the Student Activities Executive Committee must be approved by council.
