Music Outreach

This is a group of approximately 15 musicians drawn mainly from the Sixth Form who develop a programme of music together which they then take out into the local community on Thursday afternoons. Over the years, strong links have been formed with a number of local hospitals, churches, care homes and schools and the musical visits have been greatly enjoyed by both the students and their audiences. The group also provides music for events such as First Schools Day, Pudsey Bear Cafe and visitors’ parties at Christmas and in the summer.

Musicians from the school regularly present two concerts per term as part of the St Andrew’s Church concert series on Tuesday lunchtimes. The concerts are open to the public and are generally very well attended. They provide a valuable opportunity for Rugby School musicians to gain public platform experience, and are invariably well received by their audiences.
