Music at LMH
A lively counterpoint to academic study
Music at LMH is an excellent counterpoint to academic study, enriching our students’ development. Whether it is a non-music student discussing interpretation in François Couperin’s music, or a music student singing during a relaxed evening of music-making in the Principal’s lodgings, music brings minds together in a variety of contexts. LMH’s music scene has expanded to include an orchestra, several concert series, choir tours, vocal tuition, concerts for JCR/MRC/SCR to make music together – all of which have an accent on participation. We give opportunities for students of all disciplines to participate in and to listen to music in a range of styles.

From our Principal
Music has always been an important part of LMH’s life. Today we have an orchestra and a flourishing choir. There’s a cohort of music students – and a much wider body of people who play or sing music for sheer enjoyment. I myself sang in a cathedral choir when knee high to a grass-hopper and have sung, or played instruments ever since. Since arriving at LMH I’ve been delighted to witness (and occasionally even take part in) so much music-making of such variety. We have recently acquired a stunning Steinway A grand piano for the serious pianists in the college to practice and perform on.
