The wise musicians are those who play what they can master
Music plays a major role in the life of Dr Challoner’s High School, thanks to a thriving and extensive extra-curricular programme which caters to all levels of ability.
We currently boast five choirs, two orchestras, a wind band and a variety of instrumental chamber ensembles, all of whom rehearse on a weekly basis and have multiple opportunities to perform both in school and within the wider community. In collaboration with Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, we also form a Joint Choir and Orchestra and the ever-popular Swing Band!
In addition to a busy concert calendar, we are also keen to celebrate our musicians elsewhere, leading foreign tours on a regular basis: this year our Senior Choirs will be serenading Venice and Verona at Easter prior to Swing Band’s trip to Germany’s Mosel Valley in July.
