We meet at 4pm every Sunday for about an hour and a half to sing from any and every genre – in the past we have tried Hallelujah, Bohemian Rhapsody, Billy Joel, Christmas carols, Corsican lullabies and songs from across Africa. All abilities are welcome and no audition is required. We are always looking for new members and new things to try, so feel free to come along whenever you can.
Each term we work towards a small concert and do swaps/joint events with other similar choirs.

Clare College Music Society is one of the biggest and one of the most highly regarded music societies in Cambridge. It not only gives the students of Clare the opportunity to take part in top class music making, but also the university as a whole.
The purpose of the society is to promote student music making in the college. We put on a full orchestral concert once a term, and run a series of recitals each term on Monday lunchtimes. In addition to this, we welcome applications to put on an opera in any space that would be suitable (recent productions have taken place in the Chapel and in the JCR). We are also happy to promote any concert idea that a Clare student might have – last year saw a late night performance of the Rachmaninov Vespers in the Chapel by the newly formed Peregrine Ensemble.

Clare Live caters for all musical styles not covered by CCMS or Clare Jazz, anything from folk to indie and rock. We own two drum kits, a bass guitar, a collection of amps and a small synthesiser keyboard that any Clare students can rent out for practice or gigging. We also hold regular open mic nights and occasional gigs to provide opportunities to perform and enjoy high quality student music.Clare Live has a reputation as an exciting and active society which is looking for more people to get involved this year. There is varying level of commitment that you can choose but should be a few hours a month at most. Whether you are looking to form a new band, try out a song you’ve written, organise a gig or simply listen to some good music, we’re the society for you!
