our music community

We have over twenty student-led, registered music groups here at the University of Exeter, catering for a vast range of talents, genres, preferences, and styles Some of our music societies are auditioned, whilst others aren’t, meaning there is truly something for everyone to get involved in!

Joining a society allows you to rehearse with your chosen society/societies and participate in society-specific social activities. You can check out our groups here.

In addition to this, we have a community of over 300 Music Members here at Exeter. Many of our members take part in a range of music performance opportunities available across the year.
