'Rehearsals run from early September through to our concert in mid-December, then from early January to the concert in late April/early May. New members are always welcome - no auditions ... Despite the good audiences that the choir's performances attract, ticket sales do not cover the considerable costs of mounting concerts with professional soloists and a full orchestra. Like other similar choirs, therefore, the Choral Society has to charge its members a subscription ... as well as running various fund-raising events.'

Philomusica is Aberystwyth's symphony orchestra. Operated as a registered charity independent of the University, the orchestra is nevertheless closely linked with the University and is conducted by the Director of Music ... Usually about 80 strong, a large proportion of the players in Philomusica are students who work alongside local amateur and professional musicians - some of whom travel considerable distances to play in one of the largest and most successful groups of its kind in Wales. Two concerts are presented each year.’
