Wolfson College Choir
This is a no-audition, everyone-welcome choir.
The College choir is back for Trinity term!
The Wolfson Choir is a no-audition, everyone-welcome choir. Its director is Meghan Quinlan (DPhil candidate at Merton). The choir repertoire is focused on music that isn't well covered in Oxford - music from different ethnic backgrounds, and a variety of countries -, which fits well with the diversity of the Wolfson community. Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays, 7:30 - 9 PM at Leonard Wolfson Auditorium.
If you are interested, contact Meghan Quinlan.
Trinity Term 2017 Concert:
