Welcome to Cambridge MedVet Music! Started in Michaelmas 2019, we are a society for medical and veterinary students at the University of Cambridge to pursue their musical interests, at a low commitment level that is compatible with the time demands of our degrees. We bring together students of ALL years of our degrees, from different colleges, and so is a great way to get to know other medvet musicians! Check out our Lent 2020 concert, for an idea of what we get up to!
We started out as a society for pre-clinical medical students, but we always wanted to, and have now expanded our membership to medics and vets, as well as pre-clinical and clinical students, truly creating a great community to make music. We fundamentally aim to keep commitment low, typically having only a couple of rehearsals before each concert, yet maintaining high standards through individual practice, which we can all fit around our own schedules. We currently consist of a full orchestra, a string orchestra, a choir/acapella group, and various chamber ensembles, and we hope to expand to include a wind band, as well as bands for pop music - all dependent on popular interest of course.
We also have social events organised by our wonderful social secs, with Revs being a popular destination to make use of that good old MedSoc discount!
