UEA Electronic Music Society
The UEA Electronic Music Society provides a space where fans and creators of electronic music can enjoy, share, and collaborate together. Whether you like drum and bass, house, dubstep, jungle, techno, garage, reggae, trap, trance, or any other form of electronic music, Electronic Music Society is for you!
They organise their own events where their member-DJs, producers, and organisers have a chance at showcasing their skills in creating an event. For those interested in creating music they provide a base for DJs and producers to collaborate and receive feedback. If you have a mix or track to share, the EMS community has feedback to provide. If you’re new to DJing or production, we’ve got you covered with workshops led by our more experienced members and professional DJs/ Producers from Norfolk.
Initially called the 'Glee' Showchoir, the UEA Showchoir is the society to join if you want a fun environment for singing your favourite modern, popular songs, a diverse range of singing ability (all are welcome!), solo opportunities, and many social events throughout the year.
The Showchoir usually performs at least twice a year, either in the Hive in Union House or in the LCR as part of their 'Showcase'. Past years have seen the choir perform as varied artists as Pink, Elton John, Paloma Faith and Tim Curry.
UEA Opera Society
Our aim as a society is to provide all UEA students with the opportunity to design, produce and perform in Opera. We run masterclasses held by professional singers throughout the year, as well as informal concerts and each year aim to produce a full scale opera production.
After a highly successful first year where we won the award for best new society following a sell-out production of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, we look forward to a busy year ahead.
UEA Songwriters' Society
“Have you got a song in you waiting to come out, but you’re not sure how or where to begin? Or maybe you are a songwriter looking for others to work with to help you hone your craft?” Created in January 2017 by Music Award Holders Emily Parish and Polly Paulusma, the Songwriters' Society is for all ages and abilities; the only prerequisite is a willingness to share ideas.
Emily has been writing and performing her own songs for about a year, while Polly signed to Bjork’s indie label One Little Indian and Sony Publishing in 2003, having since released 3 studio albums, toured the US, UK, and Europe, supported Bob Dylan, and played Glastonbury!
Emily and Polly want to share their combined song writing experience with budding and established songwriters alike across UEA, to encourage new songwriting and create a space for collaborative creativity.
