Extracurricular Music

Over 15 choirs, orchestras and chamber ensembles rehearse each week, providing girls with the opportunity to enjoy a range of musical experiences and to take part in a busy programme of internal and external performances.  Annual events include the vibrant Christmas Celebration and the wide-ranging Musical Soirées.  Another highlight is the biennial Easter Concert when a major choral work is performed by a choir of girls, staff, parents and friends with the accompaniment of a professional orchestra.

In addition to providing the music for School liturgy, the Senior Choir undertakes a foreign tour every two years (most recently to Prague) and regularly sings Choral Evensong at major British Cathedrals.  For more details see the news items below.
