Whilst we would love to see you with us at the Imperial College Sinfonietta, if you are unsuccessful at audition, would like to take on another musical society or think that it’s simply not for you there are a huge number of other musical groups at Imperial College that you can take part in.
Imperial College Symphony Orchestra (ICSO)
One of Imperial College’s three orchestras, ICSO is the university’s flagship orchestra. Fully auditioned, ICSO is conducted by Richard Dickens, head of music at Imperial, and like Sinfonietta, performs a largely classical repertoire and hosts several excellent concerts and showcases throughout the year. For more information visit their website.
Imperial College Choir
The Imperial College Choir is the university’s largest choir and has, often in the past, collaborated with Sinfonietta, such as most recently in our 2016 summer concerts Avatar Suite. They are an un-auditioned group and more information about them can be found on their website.
Imperial College Chamber Choir (ICCC)
ICCC are a smaller auditioned choir. They perform a wide range of repertoire and put on multiple concerts every term around and outside of Imperial college, regularly performing for non-imperial audiences. If not at their concerts, you can also enjoy their music every fortnight on a wednesday in their evensong at Holy Trinity church on Prince consort road. To find out more about ICCC and their events, visit their website.
Imperial College Wind Band
Imperial College Wind Band are imperial’s major wind ensemble. They are un-auditioned group comprising wind, brass and percussion (sorry strings). They perform all sorts of repertoire from classical to film and showcase this in a range of regular termly concerts and irregular casual concerts in the Business school foyer. To find out more, visit their website.
Imperial College String Ensemble
If strings felt a little left out following wind band’s profile, fear not, ICSE may be the ensemble for you. ICSE is just strings, no more and no less. A smaller ensemble, they are no less reputable and provide an excellent opportunity to get stuck into smaller ensemble playing. To see what ICSE are up to visit their website.
