Who would have though we’d bring the house down with a jazz piece?! Our performance of Will Todd’s exhilarating Mass in Blue turned out to be a triumph as the happy faces show …

How to find us
We rehearse in the music block at Headington School, Headington Road, OX3 7TD. You can click here to see a bird’s eye view of the school: the music block is next to the tennis courts.
Enter through the gates on Headley Way. Then, if you’re on foot, go straight ahead and go behind the main buildings – the music block is the last building you come to, past the dining room. Turn left just before the building to get to the entrance.
If you’re coming by car, turn left from the Headley Way gates and drive round the front of the school, heading towards the tennis courts where there is plenty of parking.

Singing in the community
Recently we’ve been putting on a short programme of carols and songs to entertain the residents of local care homes and retirement housing. Over 20 choir members have signed up for this sub-choir. This year we’ll start adding songs from the 1940s – 1960s, songs from the shows and other musical offerings to our repertoire.
