The choirs and orchestras perform regularly throughout the year at services, concerts, informal community recitals and as part of large-scale drama productions, most of which are joint productions between senior girls and boys. The musical groups include junior and senior orchestras, various ensembles and the popular ‘Big Band’.
The annual week-long music festival is the highlight of the year providing the pupils with the opportunity to take part in workshops, performances and showcases.
Berkhamsted Girls’ most talented musicians are also given the chance to compete for the title of Young Berkhamsted Musician of the Year.
