Last week, the school was delighted to welcome the renowned tenor James Gilchrist to lead a masterclass with singers and their accompanists ahead of this week's Chamber Concert, which is set to take place at the Magdalen College Auditorium on Thursday 14 February. 

However, MCS students also had their own masterful performances to give. 

MCS musicians Roland Balbag, Michael Reichenberg Ashby, Alex Adams, David McIntyre, Alexander Gibb and Kathryn Baker all played in the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra concert last Sunday. In addition, particular mention should go to soloists Clara Graham in Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto and Kevin Zheng in Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto. They had both reached the final after two previous rounds and they performed superbly.
