Art, Music, Drama & Sport

Graduates have access to all college sports facilities including football, rugby and cricket pitches, tennis courts, a gym and a boathouse. The Choir of The Queen’s College has established a reputation as Oxford’s finest mixed-voice chapel choir. The twenty-eight strong ensemble is made up of choral-award holders and volunteers from Queen’s and other colleges. The Eglesfield Musical Society, named after our Founder (and the oldest musical society in Oxford), organises a substantial series of concerts each year, ranging from chamber music to orchestral works. These concerts provide abundant performing and conducting opportunities for the College’s many musicians, as well as featuring visiting artists. Facilities for individual and group rehearsal are available in the two Music Practice Rooms, one equipped with grand piano and the other with upright piano and harpsichord. In addition to the organ, the chapel contains a concert grand piano and a fine harpsichord, and is acoustically one of the best chapels in Oxford for musical performances.
