At UEA, we welcome students, staff and the wider community to music making for all abilities.
Whether you are an experienced musician or want to try playing or singing with others for the first time, you can find opportunities here. A lot of our activity is social, fun and offers the chance to leave work stress behind. Some of it is ambitious and professionally led, exploring extraordinary music that repays our commitment with a chance to touch the greatest of art. Light-hearted or demanding, all our music making is welcoming and friendly.
