Keble College Music Society

The college music society is a really fun and exciting thing to get involved with. It aims to support music-making in the college by funding and advertising all of the ensembles, helping people to create new ensembles, and organising regular chamber and solo recitals. On top of that, the society organises more relaxed events, such as Jazz nights in the bar, Christmas Carol concerts, open mic nights and a Freshers’ Recital. We strongly encourage anyone with an interest in music to join an ensemble, create something new, perform or come along and listen to a few concerts. We welcome people of all abilities, no matter what sort of music they’re interested in and we truly believe that music is a highly important, fun and relaxing part of the extra-curricular life at Keble. If you are an experienced musician, then please feel free to take part in any of the ensembles and perform; if you have very little or no musical experience, then you are more than welcome to come along to our events or you could even have a go at the Gospel Choir that is open to absolutely everyone. Please don’t hesitate to contact anyone on the committee or any of the ensemble leaders if we could help you in anyway. As the President of the society, I am more than happy to discuss your musical interests with you if you wish to email me, Facebook me or stop me by in college for a chat.

Have a look at the list of ensembles below and email the leaders if you wish to get involved! Also, check out our website, like the Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter to find out more and keep up to date!

Christian Union

Keble Christian Union (CU) is a thriving community of Christians who meet together regularly to worship God together and to be a support for each other. We believe that university is a great time for thinking through the deepest issues of life, and we’re willing to help you to understand why Christians believe what we do and tell you what we believe. We put on events for the whole of the college throughout term time and meet as a group at least once every week so that we can build community with each other.
