The Auburn University Cultural Music Society was founded in the spring of 2014 with the mission of bringing awareness to the Auburn community about the importance of cultural diversity through music. All cultures have some form of music, but each has a different perspective on the uses of music as well as the sounds produced by its instruments. Members are guided by the idea that music has a way of bringing people together and unifying them no matter what nationality or ideology they come from. The group tries to provide music events for students and community members to express their cultural differences while promoting an understanding of the similarities that all humanity share.
