Music

Singing

Choral singing is at the heart of the school with congregational participation in chapel and in the annual house song competition where every pupil takes part. The College Choir sings at every Chapel service and the special events such as the Carol Service and Founder’s Day. This group is open to all students without audition, while the A Cappella Group is made up of the most accomplished singers in the school and sings at a number of events outside during the year.

Concerts

Pupils present numerous concerts throughout the year both at school and in the local area. Music plays an integral part of our Chapel services and assemblies as well the special occasions that punctuate the year; Harvest Festival, Remembrance Sunday, Easter and the Carol Service. We also take a full part in the Tavistock Music and Arts Festival, sponsoring and leading the concert for combined school choirs ‘Tavistock Sings!’

Every year the Concert Society presents a season of high quality professional concerts by leading musicians. The concerts are open to the general public but entry for pupils at the school is completely free.

Ensembles

Group music making is one of the most beneficial aspects of learning an instrument and the department runs a number of ensembles which are regularly reviewed in order to provide the most appropriate experience for our current pupils.  These would include the Concert Band for all wind and percussion players, a string ensemble, as well as rock bands and other contemporary groups.  The music department is also fully involved in the regular musical productions, both in playing and singing as well as providing instrumental music for drama productions.
