Please find below our latest virtual concerts. We hope you enjoy them!
We were so hoping to have a live audience for this year’s Sheldonian Concert in June, but sadly it was not to be. We hope you enjoy this final video of the year, celebrating our wonderful musicians in the Sixth Form as well as bringing together all the Second Form to sing.
This term guitar pupils at MCS have been extremely lucky to collaborate with renowned musician and educator Toñín Corujo. Maestro is a highly respected Timple player and composer from Lanzarote. The pupils were delighted to work with his students on Mr Wisby’s arrangement of “The good the bad and the ugly. “, and have an opportunity to hear this unique and fantastic instrument in action. Well done to everyone involved.
Making music in ensembles is an important part of what we do at MCS. This year has been extremely challenging as we have coped with year group bubbles, social distancing and disrupted rehearsals. However, the pupils have risen to the opportunities and worked really hard during the year to develop their musical skills. This video is a collection of some of the music that they have been rehearsing since December.

Delighted to be back in school and able to rehearse ensembles again! Here is a piece that our new guitar teacher Mr Wisby put together for his pupils during lockdown:
Our November Music at Magdalen is traditionally the time to witness many of the ensembles in action for the first time.
