There are concerts of all sorts of music taking place in school throughout the year, in the music school Octagon, the Woodard Room, the theatre or the chapel. Each acoustic complements the music performed, which ranges from full orchestral works with choir to intimate solos.
Regular Octagon concerts give performers of all standards the chance to gain confidence in performance in a really supportive atmosphere which everyone enjoys, including the performers. Orchestra, string orchestra and wind band all have their own programmes of material that are presented in larger concert venues, and rock and pop musicians also have several concerts to demonstrate their skills with full lighting and sound rigs.
String quartets, jazz combos, flute trios and saxophone groups all contribute to a thriving chamber music scene, and there are plenty of ad hoc groups that get together for various projects.
