It was great to see such a large turnout for the Music society’s first virtual AGM on Wednesday evening. We had over 100 people on the call and it was wonderful to see so many first years and non-music students. I’d like to thank all of you who attended the meeting and all of those who applied for positions. We have filled almost all positions, and I am looking forward to welcoming the new committee and handing over in the next few weeks.

A huge thank you from me to the outgoing committee, having managed to adapt to the challenges of Covid and produce numerous virtual musical and social sessions, as well as in-person chamber and jazz collective activity at the start of the academic year. I’m looking forward to the final brass band videos coming through very soon, as well as the saxophone choir recording and the creative exchange concert on 24th March!
Again, congratulations to the new committee and I look forward to seeing what we have in store. I know Hannah Beech is looking forward to beginning as president too- “Firstly, thank you all for giving me the opportunity to be President! We’ve got a fantastic committee and I’m confident that we can really make the most of what the music society has to offer. Covid or no Covid, I can’t wait to start working with everyone to help create an amazing music experience for everyone in UoBMS!”.
