Promoting health through music
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: to unite students together in their musical interests, add to the diversity of student life at Melbourne University, and, of course, make some great music!
Health: to use this musical talent to promote health through music, by means of (but not limited to) holding charity concerts and donating to health-related causes, and performing at hospitals and nursing homes in metropolitan and rural Victoria.
Apollo Music Society is a music society at the University of Melbourne, open to students of all faculties and backgrounds. It was founded in 2002 by a group of second year medical students who witnessed a visiting troupe of Portuguese medical students put on an enthralling performance at the University's Sunderland Theatre. This event inspired our founders to create Apollo: a focal point for students of the health sciences to gather and pursue their musical interests.
