UBC Music Initiative

Bringing together UBC's musicians and music lovers through monthly concerts, musical workshops, and endless performances opportunities.


UBC Music Initiative (UMI) is a student-run organization dedicated to providing opportunities for students to perform and share their music with the community. At UMI, we deeply believe in inspiring and uniting musicians and music-lovers to rediscover their love for musical performances. Our monthly socials allow members to showcase their talents and connect with UBC's music community, while our local concerts around Vancouver engage members in using their talents for good in the community at large. At its heart, UMI is committed to building passion and community among its members through the medium of music and performance.
