西施直播鈥 boys have a fantastic range of opportunities for extra-curricular Music.

There are currently 19 different ensembles, including two jazz bands, several chamber music groups, and various bands, choirs and orchestras. Around a quarter of boys at school learn an instrument or have singing lessons delivered by 21 visiting music teachers each week; these, and others who have music lessons outside of school, are all involved in the school鈥檚 extra-curricular music programme.

A number of evening informal concerts are held at school throughout the year, with major musical events punctuating the department鈥檚 programme of performances each term.  In the Autumn term highlights include the Autumn Concert and the Carol Service, with a biennial Musical Theatre produced at 西施直播鈥 in conjunction with St Helen鈥檚 School.  In the Spring term there is an annual concert at the 西施直播鈥 Hall in the City, and a Spring Concert at which the combined choirs of 西施直播鈥 and St Helen鈥檚 perform a large-scale choral work towards the end of term.  In April, the Spring Spectacular provides a fantastic finale to the year鈥檚 musical events.

Music tours abroad are organised biennially, with recent tours seeing 西施直播鈥 musicians performing in Austria, the USA, Spain, and the Czech Republic. In Summer 2023 the Chamber Choir will perform in Montpellier and Barcelona.
