Tutti - The MedSoc Music Society


Tutti is the MedSoc music society run by students, for students! If playing, singing and performing is for you, then we have a group you can join!

We are currently made up of Medchoir, Orchestra, Big Band, as well as 2 vocal A cappella groups: Belcanto and Vocal Chords.

With rehearsals throughout the year, there are opportunities to perform in several concerts, competitions and joint MedSoc events. If you can't find a group for you, why not get in touch about setting one up?!

Whether you are dusting off your instrument or want to carry on playing or singing, all are welcome and all groups are unauditioned (apart from Belcanto and Vocal Chords).

UBMS Orchestra

Do you play a musical instrument…? I thought so! So why not join the UBMS orchestra? We are a student led group that play a wide range of music: from film music such as Pirates of the Caribbean, right through to classical music such as Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony.

We are a friendly, sociable group that meets every Thursday 7-9pm in the Medschool. No auditions necessary, so anyone can come along! We play 2 concerts a year; one at the end of each term. We also have several socials throughout the year. In the past we’ve gone out for meals, seen live music and much more!

So for more information or to see some pictures and hear some sound clips please check out our Facebook group ‘UBMS Orchestra’ or email us at Hope to see you in rehearsals!


UBMS Big Band

UBMS Big Band is the jazz band of MedSoc – made from anyone who wants to take part! We warmly welcome anyone who has that passion to play swing, funk, soul music and much, much more! It doesn’t matter about grades or experience – there’s something for everyone! We rehearse on Tuesdays from 6:30PM-8.30PM, and play in concerts throughout the year! Check out our Facebook group ‘UBMS Big Band’ for more information, or to get in touch by emailing me at or the Big Band email address at - Ellie Payne (President)



Passionate about singing? Shower song sessions/singing into your hairbrush no longer enough? Come join Medchoir – the fun, friendly outlet for anyone who wants to sing, whatever your experience!

We meet on Wednesday evenings 7pm in the Medical School to rehearse and hold 2 concerts every year, as well as performing in others alongside the other Tutti societies. There are plenty of opportunities for solos and small group performances and everyone has an input when it comes to song choices. Our recent performances have included Glee’s acapella rendition of Don’t Stop Believing, Blackbird by the Beatles, a Lion King Medley and a Jackson 5 mash-up! We also have several socials throughout the year – previously we’ve been bowling and ice-skating, as well as traditional Selly Oak curries.

Interested? Feel free to pop along, check out our Facebook group ‘Medchoir!’ or email us at 



Belcanto is an auditioned female chamber choir who sing a variety of pieces, ranging from classical to jazz and covering pretty much everything in between. We rehearse on Thursday evenings and then sing in both larger and smaller events throughout the year. The majority of the songs are unaccompanied and have close, interesting harmonies. For more information, get in touch and email


Vocal Chords

Vocal Chords is an all male barbershop/a cappella group that was formed in 2009. We sing a variety of songs from your classic barbershop to modern a cappella pop songs and anything in between. Rehearsals are flexible and arranged around the schedules of all the members. To hear some of our music go to 

This group is auditioned, but it's a pretty relaxed process, we ask you to sing a song of your choice, we'll work out your range and then have a sing through of a piece of music that we'll be working on. If you'd like to join please send an email to Oliver Cobb at, we'd love to hear from you!
