Apollo Music Society
Apollo Music Society is a music society at the University of Melbourne. We have a diverse range of ensembles open for anyone of all levels of experience to join! From our humble beginnings as a small string orchestra, Apollo has flourished to become a well-established member of the cultural life at the University of Melbourne. Our membership includes students from all faculties as well as students from other tertiary institutions.
Since our inception in 2002, we have also seen the birth and growth of several ensembles such as Acapollo, our acapella group, Choir, a group of people who just love to sing, Fusion, the band which plays whatever the hell it wants, Jazz, who are smoother than silk, and of course Strings who carry on our heritage! We even have our newest Rock division, who really are completely off the scales!
What do we do?
We at Apollo strive to pursue two main goals, as embodied in the namesake of our society: Apollo, the ancient Greek deity of Health and Music.
Music: Yes, as a music society we do indeed make music! We aim to unite students together in their musical interests, enhancing your university experience while also making good friends!
Health: Playing music is healthy, and using our musical talent we promote health through music, by means of (but not limited to) holding concerts and donating to health-related causes, and performing at hospitals and nursing homes.
As a society, we have a variety of social events through the year whether it’s going out for a meal or drinks after rehearsals, social nights doing laser or bowling, but most memorably our biannual camps!
- To unite students together in their musical interest and add to the diversity of student life.
- To promote great music and live music performances to enhance the university environment
- To use musical talent to promote health through music by holding charity concerts and donating to health related causes
- To travel to hospitals and nursing homes in metropolitan and rural Victoria to perform.
