There is an exceptionally strong choral tradition at Oakham. Almost 25% of pupils sing in choirs, all of which rehearse weekly conducted by the Director of Music or the Assistant Director of Music. The School has commissioned choral works from major composers such as Paul Mealor, Thomas Hewitt Jones, Cecilia McDowall, Gavin Bryars, Will Todd, Gabriel Jackson, Anthony Piccolo, Paul Spicer (OO) and Sir John Tavener.
Oakham Choral Society is also run by the School’s staff for the local community. It performs major choral works twice a year. Some of the School’s more accomplished solo singers and instrumentalists perform with this choir. For further information, please visit Oakham Choral Society.
