Welcome to the Keble College Music Society website. We hope you will be able to find out more about us through these pages, but please feel free to contact us for more information.

KCMS supports a range of ensembles large and small, auditioning and non-auditioning: there's the Keble String Orchestra and Big Band for instrumentalists, and the Henry Ley Singers and Chapel Choir for those who sing. Click for more information on each, or look under other ensembles for details on setting up your own group!

We organise various series of professional concerts throughout the year, as well as providing opportunities for everyone to get involved through our termly Warden's Recitals and Jazz Evenings in the bar.

The Society's second early music festival will run in Hilary Term 2015 - we hope many of you will join us at some point over the festival.

Recently, the Henry Ley Singers recorded 'The Leaves of Life', their first professional recording project, with music by Clive Russell and Benjamin Britten.

Keble also has several pianos and a harpsichord which may be booked for practice, and the College Bar may be used for ensembles for amplified instruments. Further, KCMS regularly helps Keble musicians with music and equipment hire.

Keble supports its musicians, heavily subsidising piano lessons, and with eight Choral Scholarships available, a Music Scholarship awarded annually to either a fresher undergraduate or fresher graduate, and three Organ Scholars. See Scholarships for full details.

So whether a performer, listener, vocalist or instrumentalist, we hope there's something to your liking on offer, and we look forward to seeing you at some of our events this term!
