A Little Bit of History
The society was reformed in 1972 by Peter Dart, at which time it consisted only of the Choir and the Orchestra, then led by a young Simon Rattle. Recently the society has grown substantially with the formation of the Wind Band by Tom Sears in 2011 and the Jazz Band by a group of students in 2012. Our patron is Sir Nicholas Jackson. The Wind Band was recently renamed to the Concert Band in 2016.
