Participation in ensembles is an important way of developing musical communication and of learning and practising performance skills.  Students in the Orchestral and Vocal Department are assigned to an ensemble, attendance at which is obligatory.


The ensembles are listed here:                                     

We also encourage students to take part in smaller chamber music groups.


The Conservatoire runs regular series of performances open to the public, including ensemble concerts, solo and chamber music recitals, opera and drama productions, and musical evenings, featuring students of all levels.   

Students are expected to participate in concerts and other performance opportunities.  Details will be posted on notice boards and on the Conservatoire website.  Students are required to perform at Conservatoire concerts when called upon to do so.
