Ensembles

The University of Reading has a wide range of ensembles to get involved in; whether you’re an instrumental player, a vocalist or a pianist there’s always something to get stuck into!  We enjoy a close relationship with the Reading University Music Society (RUMS) and our array of offerings ensure that there is something for everyone.
