Music Events and Activities

View our online calendar listing all the choir rehearsals and music society events.


St Edmund Hall has two choirs. The Chapel Choir is non-auditioning and open to members of all Oxford colleges. The Alternative Choir is a Teddy Hall group who sing a capella versions of popular songs. They tend to rehearse on a weekly basis and perform at concerts and Carols in the Quad.

Teddy Hall’s Got Talent

The annual competition has now become something of an institution and always attracts plenty of musical talent.

Lunchtime Concerts

The Teddy Hall Music Society usually organises several lunchtime concerts each term, which are open to the public and free of charge. The recitals last around 45 minutes and usually take place in the Old Dining Hall or the Chapel. Recent performers have included the Organ Scholars, the Chapel Choir, a neo-classical ensemble and individual musicians.

Carols in the Quad

This is a popular annual event, held just before the start of the Christmas holiday in the Front Quad, with singing for all and performances from our two choirs.

Teddy Hall Music Society

The Society’s committee includes the Director of Music, the Arts & Culture Reps from the JCR (the College’s undergraduate student body), a representative from the MCR (the College’s postgraduate body) and the Organ Scholars. It organises a range of musical activities in College, such as jam sessions, open mic nights, Teddy Hall’s Got Talent, the lunchtime concert series and a termly, more formal, chamber music concert.
