Choir in tree court Dan White

For most members of the choir singing is the most important part of their lives outside academic work.

The choir works hard to achieve the highest musical standards but maintains a relaxed atmosphere, allowing members to enjoy both the musical and social benefits of choral singing.

Out of term more varied work takes place, including high-profile concerts, radio broadcasts and international tours. The choir also sings at several College Feasts in the year which are great social and gastronomic occasions.

Each year the choir elects one of its third-year members to act as a representative to help with the smooth running of the choir, and the Choir Administrator Claire Wheeler helps with varied aspects of choir membership and organisational matters. Choir members read all subjects, though several read Music, and many also play instruments to a high level.
