Choirs, Groups & Ensembles

We love to give our students diverse opportunities to make music together and offer a range of different choirs, groups and ensembles to suit differing levels of ability. All are fantastic opportunities to socialise with like-minded people whilst making music – and they provide a range of opportunities for those who like to perform in public.
