All EMS ensembles are non-auditioning. If you would like to join, simply get in touch via the 'Committee & Contact' page.



The EMS Orchestra welcomes players of all abilities to come and perform with us (we are non-auditioned). It is a fantastic way to integrate undergraduate and postgraduate members of the university in a relaxed environment; we rehearse once a week on Wednesday at 8.15pm in the Chapel. Past repertoire has included Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8, Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture.



Chorus offers an alternative to one of Oxford’s many Chapel choirs and performs varied repertoire. We are a mixed, non-auditioned choir and rehearse on Thursday evenings at 8pm in the Chapel. In the past, we have performed works such as I Sowed the Seeds of Love by Gustav Holst and traditional songs such as Danny Boy.

Jazz Band


The Jazz band performs thrice a term at our jazz nights in Beer Cellar, our college bar. It allows musicians of all abilities to come together and enjoy a variety of styles including jazz, swing and funk. There are plenty of opportunities for solos for those who want them, but those with less experience can gain confidence while enjoying playing as part of the band.
