Peterhouse Music Society

The student-run Music Society organises concerts, lunchtime recitals and other musical events by Peterhouse musicians and students from other colleges.

Peterhouse hosts a variety of musical events. Our lunchtime concert series provides a friendly platform to showcase talent from in and out of college. We also put on end of term showcase concerts in the Peterhouse theatre, and popular Jazz & Gin evenings in the Plevy Bar.

Our next Lunchtime recital is on Wednesday 8 November, at 1:30 in the Lubbock Room, and our Michaelmas Term Concert is on Saturday 18th November at 7:30 in the Friends of Peterhouse Theatre.

The college is very lucky to host the Camerata Musica series of chamber recitals, bringing some of the world's leading musicians to Peterhouse: student tickets are available at generously subsidised prices.

Peterhouse is very fortunate to have a number of music awards open to members of the College. Thanks to support from Camerata Musica, the Peterhouse Music Society Awards scheme offers generous financial support to student ensembles connected with the College. Details of the latest round of auditions and how to apply are available here.

Undergraduates of Peterhouse are also warmly encouraged to enter the Lady Alexandra Dacre Music Prize for excellence in performance, composition or academic studies in music. The deadline for applications for this year's competition is Friday 12th January. For more details of the award and of how to apply, please click here.

In a new and exciting development for College music, Peterhouse has recently appointed its first Director of Music, Dr Simon Jackson.
