Roehampton has an active musical scene and there are opportunities to participate in a broad range of musical styles. From jazz to music theatre, opera to rap, band nights and acoustic gigs at 'Live at the Hive' - there are plenty of chances to get involved.
Roehampton has two choirs – one for students and one for staff- which come together for big events. There are carol services, summer concerts with strawberries and cream, and songs from the shows.
The university's famous steel band meets weekly, with arrangements of classic and contemporary songs by students and their experienced director, Anne Hornby.
There are lunchtime concerts every week, where students can try-out their material in front of the friends, and a big Christmas Gala Concert held each year, where we celebrate the diversity of Roehampton's talent.
Each college has pianos for practice and we have dedicated music space for rehearsals.
For those who want to take it further, Roehampton runs a music scholarship programme, with funding available for talented students to develop their skills and prepare for the world beyond university.
Roehampton's Director of Music, Gulliver Ralston, also runs an 'Encounters' series where students can meet informally with professionals from the music industry, performers and academics, and learn about the role of music in society.
