Music

Students playing trumpet in concert

Students are able to join a wide range of groups and ensembles.  The Wind Band welcomes woodwind and brass players of Grade 2 standard and above.  The Band is joined by our other ensembles and soloists for our annual Christmas Concert at The Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton. 

 

Our Choir meets on Monday lunchtimes and rehearses throughout the Autumn term in preparation for a number of concerts throughout the region.  The Musical, which takes place at the end of the Spring term, enables vocalists to develop their skills either as soloists or as part of the chorus. 

The String Orchestra performs at both the Annual Christmas Concert and the Summer Soiree Concert.  Again, the minimum standard is Grade 2. 

The Jazz Band is currently playing modern Jazz and the Soul Band performs music in many different styles.  Minimum standard for the Jazz Band is Grade 3, and Soul Band requires knowledge of a wide range of chord and rhythms.

In addition, students are able to join our Guitar Ensemble, Flute Choir and Chamber Choir, the minimum standard for each of these being Grade 2.

In the Summer term, the School holds its House Music and Verse Speaking Competition, giving students the opportunity to perform in public either as soloists or as part of an ensemble, and our Summer Soiree concert is a delightful evening of al-fresco music-making.
