Music Durham

The Times Higher Student Experience Survey showed Durham as the number one University for extracurricular activities and societies in 2014.    
Music Durham is a forum for Durham's musicians. We ensure unity amongst the many ensembles at the university and promote music making around the city. We seek the highest standards in student performance and experience by bringing the best professional musicians to the university to guide our students, whilst maintaining a commitment to student leadership. We recognise the benefit of music and performances to listeners and performers alike, and as a result run a strong outreach programme and community relations. Music Durham is proud to promote individual involvement in music at all levels and standards, allowing for a well-rounded university experience for all of our members.
