One of the largest and most diverse Chinese orchestras in Europe.
CUCOS is a student-operated music society founded in May 2007. We aim to promote the appreciation of both eastern and western cultures through oriental music by introducing a new generation of musical perspectives to the communities in the UK. As a Cambridge University student society, we make a significant contribution to our culturally diverse city through music that takes influences from a wide range of elements, from popular culture to traditional Chinese compositions. The society consists of Chinese Instrument Department (CID) and Western Instrument Department (WID) which perform both individually and jointly in a distinctive style. Our unique atmosphere encourages musicians to fully expreess their musical creativity, and we often invite guest musicians to join our performances. In addition, we show our appreciation for the hard work of our musicians by holding social events every term.
