Music at Trinity flourishes beyond the classroom. Led by a team of experienced and ambitious teachers and in partnership with our colleagues from One Education Music students participate in a broad and varied range of teacher-led musical ensembles, student-led bands and informal music groups.

The students in our extra-curricular ensembles take part in annual performances at several prestigious venues across Manchester, including the RNCM, the Bridgewater Hall, St Ann’s Church and Manchester Cathedral.

We are proud of our school choirs who are regularly invited to perform at events across the city. Earlier in the year we performed at a ‘Challenging Hate Crime’ conference at Manchester Cathedral. We also performed at the Manchester University School of Sciences Open Event. Last year we performed at the ‘Manchester Together One Voice’ event in Albert Square.

Our school orchestra continues to thrive. Over 30 students rehearse together on Tuesday afternoons and prepare for our annual concerts. In 2019 we also performed at our school open evening and at The Stoller Hall in collaboration with One Education Music centre groups and other High school groups. This year we have been collaborating with the RNCM Symphony Orchestra.

Our highly successful steel band entertain us at many school events and had the privilege to perform for the Earl of Wessex when he visited the school in 2018.

The department has produced sell-out performances of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat, Lionel Bart’s Oliver!, The Wizard of Oz and in 2019 Beauty and the Beast. In 2021 we look forward to performing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’.

Many of our students take advantage of our extensive extra-curricular music lessons including piano, strings, brass, woodwind, guitar, percussion and many more, and successfully take graded exams on their instruments. All lessons are timetabled on rotation during the school day.

Many of our students have gone on to study Music at university and conservatoire level, including the RNCM, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and University of Manchester.
