Musical Life at Grey College

At Grey we pride ourselves on our musical diversity, and with a brand-new practise facility this year there are countless ways to get involved. We have groups that specialise in music from jazz to classical, and even folk! We also have a Facebook page to keep everyone updated on the movements of Grey Music, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Big Band

Grollingwood Big Band is the birth-child of Collingwood and Grey jazz musicians, playing a wide repertoire drawing on the intricate textures of Maynard Ferguson, the eclectic style of Jaco Pastorius, and the elegant harmonies of Duke Ellington. Though a jazz band, they reach across a wide set of genres, from jazz to pop and funk, but always bringing it home with a classic standard by Coltrane or another one of ‘the greats’. The past year Grollingwood have decided to move further forward by playing at formals, balls and bars around Durham, so stay tuned for more exciting things to come this year!

Ceilidh Band

The Grey College Ceilidh Band is a group of folk musicians of all abilities and backgrounds who come together to perform the music for dances at some of Durham’s many ceilidhs. We also take part in more performance-based gigs like college music festivals and open mic nights.

Chamber Orchestra

The Grey/Collingwood Chamber Orchestra was established with the vision of allowing college musicians from Grey and Collingwood to access classical music a bit closer to home. We have joined forces with Collingwood College to give our musicians an opportunity to play on a larger scale while also expanding our music community here at Grey. GCCO orchestra will make good use of the abundant resources at Collingwood and Grey and hopes to show its members amazing music a bit closer to college.

Choir

Grey Choir is a collegiate chapel choir. We’re non-auditioned and very proud to be one of the best choirs on the Hill. Last year, Grey Choir was awarded Society of the Year by Grey JCR on account of our huge expansion in numbers to over 50 members. Not only is our singing top-notch, but we have a great social scene and this year we’re planning a tour to Madrid!
