- Promote the art of music and its diverse functions.
- Cultivate a culture of teamwork and technical expertise in music.
- Foster leadership, teamwork, and youth engagement.
- Use music as a medium to express the ineffable.
We operate under the guidance of LUMS’ Co-Curricular Activities Office (CCA), the Office of Student Affairs (OSA), and other administrative divisions. Our constitution, drafted in 2020-21, reflects our dedication to LUMS’ traditions while ensuring a diverse and inclusive environment where discrimination has no place.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Patron of the Society, Dr. Ali Raza, for his unwavering affection and invaluable guidance. Dr. Raza’s steadfast support has been instrumental in our society’s growth and achievements, exemplifying a commitment to excellence that drives us forward.
