Performance and Ensembles

Royal Holloway University of London Department of Music offers a variety of thriving and exciting performance opprtunities. The performance department is rapidly growing and developing: currently it offers a myriad of different ensembles of all shapes, sizes, and genres -  a Symphony Orchestra, Chapel Choir, Chamber Orchestra, New Music Collective and variously can also offer an Andean Band, a Korean Percussion Group and a Gamelan Orchestra (Gamelan Puloganti). There is also a very popular student-run Big Band (Undergraduated) and Early Music Ensemble. Choral Music comprises the Royal Holloway Chorus, Founder's Choir and renowned Chapel Choir; the Chapel Choir sings regularly at the College and further afield, broadcasts on the BBC and engages in tours abroad.

In addition, each year there are new student-run ensembles that vary depending on the tastes and interests of current members of the department.

All of our students recieve specialist guidance from not only our College-based experts but from a wide breadth of external professional artists and Ensembles-in-Residence. These include The Tippett Quartet, CHROMA, The King's Singers, London Mozart Players and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. 

The College is also an All-Steinway Institution, and owns primarily Steinway and Steinway-designed instruments.

The Concert Office is the hub of performance in the department. Based here is Rebecca Miller, Director of Orchestras, and Nathan James Dearden, the College's Performance Manager. The Concert Office will happily provide information and help regarding the concert season, the orchestras and ensembles, College instruments and chamber days. You may also wish to contact our Instrumental & Vocal Tutor Coordinator, Dr Daniel Elphick, to address any queries regarding the instrumental and vocal lessons here at the College.
