There are a range of musical opportunities on offer for students and staff at NTU. So, whether you’re a trained musician or want to try something new, why not sign yourself up?


You can get involved with several musical ensembles here at a NTU, providing opportunities to develop your musical talents, perform alongside world-class orchestras and soloists and meet new friends from across the university.

From the 180 + strong Choir to our smaller ensembles such as the Drumline and Big Band, there is something on offer for every musical ability and taste. All ensembles rehearse weekly during term time and there are a number of exciting performances held across the city throughout the academic year.

The best thing about NTU Music is the opportunity to perform. Over the last year, I've performed in front of thousands of people across the UK and Spain. I also played trumpet alongside one of the best trumpeters in the world – Crispian Steele-Perkins!
