Music is for everyone at Trent College. Some excel in the Symphony Orchestra, Swing Band or Schola Cantorum; some prefer a Jazz Combo, String Quartet or A Capella vocal group.

Singing is for everyone in chapel and all students take part in our annual House Shout competition. Whether you perform at national standard or simply enjoy taking part, the breadth and variety of music at Trent means there is something for you.
