Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our ensembles have been suspended since Trinity Term 2020. We look forward to restarting them in Michaelmas Term 2021, subject to Government and University guidance.


Wednesdays 8:15 pm, Chapel

The EMS Orchestra welcomes players of all abilities (we are non-auditioned). It is a fantastic way to integrate undergraduate and postgraduate members of the university in a relaxed rehearsal space. It rehearses on Wednesdays at 8PM.


Thursdays 8:15 pm, Chapel

EMS A Cappella is a mixed-voice, non-auditioned vocal ensemble consisting of students from The Queen's College. It offers a relaxed alternative to Oxford’s auditioned chapel choirs – our repertory is varied and accessible and has included classical, folk, and popular music. It rehearses on Thursdays at 8PM.


5th Week Blues, Beer Cellar

The Jazz band performs once a term at our '5th Week Blues' in the Beer Cellar, Queen's small but mighty college bar. At the Jazz nights, we also have an open mic, and invite singers to give us a rendition of any jazz standard. Our termly bluesy jam sessions allow musicians of all abilities to join forces and enjoy music-making together.
