Senior School Music
In the Senior School, as it is across the whole school, pupils are aided by a team of specialist teachers to find their own musical journey through an imaginative and stimulating curriculum, with the option of learning an instrument from the earliest opportunity and by participating in a wide range of extra-curricular musical activities. We aim to provide something for everyone and all types of musical endeavour are encouraged. In addition, the department is a centre for termly ABRSM examinations, and Trinity examinations are run twice yearly.
There are opportunities to perform in many different styles at a variety of levels, whether it be the hymn-singing in Chapel, an Orchestral and Concerto Concert or an Evening of Jazz and Popular Music. Every pupil competes in the Inter-House Unison Song Competition, and music competitions offer opportunities for excellent soloists. Many of these performances are uploaded onto the School's YouTube channel. In 2015 the whole school recorded a CD and this can be purchased from the music school (more information here).
Large numbers of our musicians reach very high levels and several have gone on to secure places at Conservatoires in Birmingham, London (RCM and RAM) and Manchester (RNCM), Choral or Organ Scholarships or become professional performers or teachers.
Our musicians tour regularly, and a musical is staged every two years. Bromsgrove School's Choral Society, averaging 120 singers, welcomes parents and friends as well as pupils and staff, and it mounts at least one major concert each year in Routh Hall, or in local venues such as Pershore Abbey or Birmingham Town Hall.
