Magdalen College School Chamber Choir

Magdalen College School is a choir school in the heart of Oxford. It has an ancient tradition, being founded in 1480 by William Waynflete and was originally within the grounds of Magdalen College, Oxford. The school has expanded and now educates 900 pupils from ages 7 to 18, boys only up until the age of 16 and then a mixed Sixth Form. The Chamber Choir consists of sopranos, altos, tenors and basses from the senior years of the school (aged 16-18). They perform in services throughout the year in Magdalen College Chapel and The University Church in Oxford and regularly sing in the school chapel services. Each year they perform a major work with orchestra in the Sheldonian Theatre, most recently Dvorák’s Mass in D, Handel Dixit Dominus and Rutter’s Gloria. The choir also performs secular music and each year they sing madrigals and folk songs from punts on the river to bring the school year to a close. They regularly tour to cities in Europe and give concerts in churches and concert arenas.
