Live music at Elstree
Music is an important part of Elstree life both within and outside the curriculum. Aside from the year group informal concerts, there are four choirs, and a variety of orchestras and ensembles to perform with. As many as 85% of our pupils learn an instrument, with some learning two.
What is an informal music concert?
Informal concerts at Elstree are held for each year group, every term. Held in the Long Room, they are an opportunity for pupils to play or sing a piece of music they have learnt in front of a small, friendly and supportive audience.
