Music plays a vital role in the life of St George's, with the majority of pupils involved in music-making, both as part of the curriculum as well as during the everyday life of the school.
Students take music lessons until the end of Year 9 at which point the subject is offered as IGCSE and International Baccalaureate examination courses. Students regularly move on to continue their musical studies at university around the world.
A dedicated team of highly experienced music teachers deliver individual instrumental and vocal lessons to pupils throughout the school. There are numerous opportunities for pupils to perform, ranging from small informal recitals to high-profile whole-school concerts. Our own 'Young Musician of the Year' competition gives all pupils the opportunity to perform in public and there are regular performances in school assemblies.
Among the many music ensembles on offer, we are particularly proud of the school Choir and the school Orchestra, both of which undertake regular overseas tours. The Choir has a number of off-shoots which include a Chamber Choir of the more select singers and both male and female Barbershop groups. Other groups include the percussion ensemble, jazz band and there are string, brass and woodwind ensembles which complement the work carried out in the main orchestra.
The annual Spring Concert musical performance is held at the impressive Auditorium, Parco Della Musica venue in Rome.
