Hi there! I’m Patrick and I’m president of Keble College Music Society this year. Our society includes a String Orchestra and a Big Band, as well as the Henry Ley Singers and the Chapel Choir. We are also introducing a Society for Chamber Players and a Gospel Choir, but we are open to any other ideas for new ensembles and events.
In the past, the society has organised recitals for individuals and ensembles, Jazz nights filled with wine and cheese, informal Christmas Carol Concerts, an Early Music Festival and much more. We are currently planning a Fresher’s Recital, an open mic night and auditions for a Music Scholarhsip, details of which are to come.
KCMS is open to everyone; no matter how experienced you are as a musician, you are always welcome to join one of our ensembles or even just come along to some of our events and listen. The Gospel Choir is even open to people who have never sung or read music before but are willing to have a go! There will be musical activities going on throughout the year and we are sure that there will be something for people of all tastes and abilities.
