Musical Life at Stephenson

At Stephenson there are many opportunities to get involved with music, whether you’re an experienced musician or just want to try something new. With five music based societies there is something for everyone; from our own acapella society to our shared (with John Snow) Orchestra, Infinity Music Theatre, Equinox Jazz and Endeavor Voices Choir. These societies perform regularly at seasonal events as well as during formal dinners and other college events. There are also opportunities to perform at concerts held at the ARC in Stockton-on-Tees as well as SCA events. The college is always looking to expand and improve what is on offer for musical students therefore, if you haven’t found the group for you it is also very easy to set up your own musical society when you arrived!
