Over 125 years St John’s College has acquired a reputation as a school of excellence for music. The music department has grown significantly in the last decade, putting considerable strain on the present facilities. The department serves the entire campus and provides individual weekly instrumental and vocal lessons for more than 500 students.
A redesigned venue is needed for Drama, Art and Music – with the space to move and make a noise – and a modern, technologically advanced learning environment for music. The new Music Centre will include added individual teaching spaces, ensemble spaces and a magnificent performance venue of an international standard, which will host a symphony orchestra, choir, drama productions, as well as providing a regular meeting space for the Preparatory School.
The Centre is part of the long-term Infrastructure plan for the College, but sufficient donor commitment will enable us to accelerate the launch of this long-awaited project.
