Music

Well done to Ally who has been invited to the National Schools' Symphony Orchestra for a week in the summer to play the clarinet!
Ally has also just received a distinction in her Grade 8 clarinet exam.

There are many opportunities outside the classroom, during a pupil’s time at Ackworth, to contribute to the musical life of the community.

Here is a flavour of what is currently on offer:

  • Junior and Senior Choirs, singing a mixed repertoire of classical, modern and gospel songs
  • Music Theory Club
  • Community Choir for parents, friends and staff
  • Orchestra, playing a range of classical, film and folk music. All level of instrumentalists welcome.
  • Brass Group, playing classical, popular and film music
  • Saxophone ensemble, mixed repertoire
  • Chamber Choir, making the most beautiful sounds on earth!

Recent Choir trips to Vienna, Rome, Paris and Washington DC have been enjoyed by students and are a highlight in the School calendar.
