Music Groups

All music groups are free, but sometimes there is a cost if the group needs to bus somewhere to perform, and some community concerts have a charge for audience members.

Groups uniforms (Choir, Jazz, Irish) tend to be a special T shirt which we lend and black tidy trousers which are the students responsibility. We will inform you in good time if this will be needed.
