Choir and Extra-Curricular Performances
All students who receive instrumental tuition are expected to sing in the School Choir, which provides students with invaluable aural training and, depending on ability, to ultimately perform in at least one other ensemble or orchestra. Choir rehearsals take place one lunch-time each week. In addition it is expected that as students progress through the school they will participate in other extra-curricular music activities – i.e. Orchestra/Ensembles and Jazz Bands etc.
