Join an ensemble
There are various ensembles at the University, providing opportunities for students, staff and members of the local community to develop their musical talents. These include the NTU Concert Band, String Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, Big Band, Drumline, Chamber Choir, and the NTU Choir – the largest choir at the University, consisting of over 180 singers.
We also run a band development programme, which offers students the platform and facilities to meet other like-minded instrumentalists and create a band under the guidance of our experienced band development leader Tom Bates.
Throughout the academic year we host a range of exciting and memorable concerts. Previous events have included performances alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and West-End star Kerry Ellis.
The Nottingham Trent University Music Team is led by our Director of Music, the internationally-recognised choral and orchestral conductor Matthew Hopkins. The team also consists of highly experienced teachers in a variety of musical fields.
