Music at Meriden enjoys a reputation for excellence in both ensemble and individual performances. Meriden musicians have performed at some of the finest music venues in Europe, Asia and the USA. This year, more than 350 musicians performed at one of the world’s most revered performance venues, the Sydney Opera House, in a concert to celebrate the School’s 125th Anniversary.
School assemblies, community events, combined schools’ festivals and our own series of Ensembles Concerts, Amadeus Recitals and Twilight Concerts provide Meriden girls with many opportunities to perform to both small and large audiences. Meriden ensembles represent the School in eisteddfods, festivals and competitions.
Each year, the Houses in the Senior School prepare choral items for the House Music Festival and instrumental items for showcases. These items are usually chosen by the Music Prefect and senior students in each House, who also conduct the rehearsals and performances by their respective Houses.
Whole-school Music festivals and concerts are often a feature of the Meriden school calendar.
