Facts and Figures 2023/24 Music Whatever style of music a boy prefers, and whether he wants to make it a career or enjoy it as a hobby, he’ll find opportunities to explore and develop his musical interests at Abingdon. Music is a key part of both our curriculum and Other Half programme and the standard of our music education is high, with a number of students in most years going on to take Scholarships at top Oxbridge colleges and conservatoires. Yet we also make sure music is enjoyable for boys of all ages and abilities. In addition to the availability of individual instrumental and vocal lessons, students can get involved with any number of orchestras, choirs and bands – from gospel to jazz, blues to classical. We regularly stage a variety of concerts and musical theatre productions in our own impressive facilities, and many of the orchestras and choirs also have opportunities to tour and perform abroad. Wherever Abingdon boys perform, the same skill, creativity and love of music shines through.
