The Leeds University Union Music Society (LUUMS) is one of the largest societies in the LUU and have something to offer you regardless of your subject of study, musical ability or taste.

For 2021/22 Membership, please see below!

All current rehearsals are taking place at the School of Music, in Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall.

There are ten ensembles for you to be involved with, both open ensembles and auditioned, for any instrument or ability. LUUMS is committed to giving the musicians in Leeds a chance to show their talent by ensuring that each ensemble performs a minimum of 3 concerts a year. As well as individual concerts for each ensemble in venues such as the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall and the Leeds University Great Hall, we also host two showcase concerts for both the auditioned and open ensembles. These are held in some of Leeds’ best concert venues and are a fantastic opportunity for all involved.

Alongside the diverse array of musical opportunities that we offer, LUUMS also has an exciting social calendar. Rehearsals are typically followed by a trip to Old Bar, and the year is packed full of socials for everyone to get involved in. These include large socials in the union with live music and DJs, Otley Runs, Sports Day with the University Big Band and, the highlight of the social calendar, the LUUMS Ball.
