Tthe Chorus is the original ensemble of CUMS, founded in 1843 and one of the oldest and most distinguished university music societies in the world. The original CUMS logo, below, included the Cambridge Quarters: written for the bells of St Mary the Great, the University Church, and later adopted by the clock tower that houses Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster. (N.B. Can you spot the mistake?)
Since the 1870s, the society and chorus have offered an outstanding musical education for members of the University and Cambridge residents, providing performing opportunities for over 500 Cambridge musicians every year.
