Music is an integral part of the student experience at Loreto. The department itself houses state-of-the-art facilities, including three recording studios, our listed Victorian Chapel and a 188 capacity performance theatre. In addition to the Music A-level, the department offers all students a chance to perform and enjoy music in a broader context.
The Music Programme at Loreto College is the extensive line-up of extra-curricular music activities that take place here. Nearly 200 students participate in over 40 different ensembles and groups, from Loreto Symphony Orchestra to Barbershop Group, and from Chamber Choir to E&K Records. Loreto’s different groups and soloists perform annually at prominent venues such as RNCM, Manchester Town Hall, Band on the Wall & Halle St Peter’s. There are also two prestigious competitions; the Loreto Composition Prize and the St Celia Concerto Competition.
