Welcome from the Director of Music

Joining Trinity College Choir is one of the most exciting and rewarding things you can do in your time at the University.  The Choir provides a wonderful social environment of friends from different subjects and years. You will sing outstanding music, ranging from William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, maintaining the English choral tradition, through to premières of works, often written specially for the Choir, by composers around the world.

You’ll receive free expert tuition from our world-class singing teachers. You will take part in concerts and recordings alongside some of the world’s most highly-acclaimed professional musicians. You will sing and dine at College Feasts. And you will enjoy free yearly tours to places in Europe, North America, and Australia. 

Whether or not you intend to pursue a career in music after you graduate, after three years you’ll be an accomplished singer and performer. I personally believe that is something that will be with you for the rest of your life.

This area of our website contains a wealth of information about joining the Choir, what it’s like, and what you’ll get out of it. We also debunk a few of the myths that I’ve heard over the years about joining the Choir and the College. Please explore to find out more.

But if you find that you still have some questions, then I’d be very happy to meet you on an informal basis to discuss them with you and to hear you sing. If you’d like to arrange a time to meet with me, please email > [email protected].
