Extra Curricular Music
The Music Department offers an extensive range of ensembles including traditional concert bands, orchestras, choirs and jazz ensembles as well as more unusual ensembles including Ukulele Club, World Percussion groups and Rock Club.
We have a team of eight instrumental and vocal teachers and currently well over 150 students have lessons. Each year we present a large number of concerts involving different ensembles. Here is a selection from last year:-
• Junior and Senior Concerts
• Ocean World in the Royal Hall
• St Robert’s Feast Day Mass and celebration
• Jazz n’Dine
• Easter Rocks at St Robert’s Church
• International Youth Music Festival Royal Hall and Ripon Cathedral
• Junior Musicians concert at York Racecourse
• The Big Sing Scarborough
• National Festival of Youth Music Finals Birmingham
We organise an annual residential experience which is a great opportunity for musicians to work together and next year all our new year 7’s are invited to our Junior Musicians Residential at York Racecourse.
