About us

The LSESU Music Society is one of the largest societies at the LSE, with its 400 members. Catering for a range of tastes from rock to baroque, the Music Society arranges jazz evenings, trips to concerts, open-mic nights and even boat trips -- these are just come of the exciting and well-received events we’ve held in the past. We pride ourselves on having a great presence among current students as well as alumni and School staff, embracing a greater diversity than any other society on campus.

We also collaborate extensively with other societies such as the Drama Society and their outstanding performances or the China Development Society for the ‘East vs West Music Competition’.

Our main groups are the LSE Choir and LSE Orchestra, but there are countless other smaller ensembles including the Houghtones, the Cappella group, Jazz Bands, and many more.

As a member you will gain discounted tickets to our events as well as the rights to book the two Music Practice Rooms. Whether you are interested in performing, listening or anything else musical, you're in the right place!

For more details email or visit the LSESU Music Society website to join! Do also check out our social media links -- we’re very active!


For passionate music enthusiasts, the LSESU Music Society prides itself with having a membership which offers highly unique benefits to members. Primarily, being a member will grant you access to our five Music Practice Rooms in the Shaw Library (6th Floor of the Old Building), Lincoln Chambers (between the SU shop facing the side of construction near the LSE Library), and Marshall Building. Members are able to book up to an hour per day.

As a member you will also gain discounted tickets to our events, and there’s a lot to choose from. From live band concerts to choir performances and subsidised trips to concerts, the experiences you’ll have and the friendships that will be built will be second to none.

There’s no greater joy than to share your passion with like-minded people; join the Music Society, forget the stress of university life and form memories you’ll never forget!
