Orchestras and Bands


Practical music making is an important feature of Hereford Cathedral School and instrumentalists are expected to join one of the School’s orchestras, bands or ensembles. This not only gives pupils the opportunity to enjoy music making together, but also offers the experience of performing at lunchtime and evening concerts within the School. Music pupils also make an important contribution to larger musical events in the Cathedral and outside School too.
