There's always all sorts of music going on at Robinson. We have a regular concert series each term, an excellent chapel choir, as well as a variety of orchestral and choral concerts, jazz, musicals, and much more.
Recent performances at Robinson have included Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, Mozart's Requiem, Holst 1st Suite for Band, two of Bach's Brandenburg concertos, Shostakovich's Piano Quintet and a new symphony by a current Robinson student.
The Chapel is a beautiful place for performing and listening to music, and contains one of the finest organs in Cambridge (a Frobenius) as well as a superb Steinway piano and Rubio harpsichord. The college also owns a drum kit and (unusually!) a set of steel pan drums.
There are practice rooms and a recital room for chamber music. The college is also very lucky to have its own fully equipped purpose-built theatre, as well as a second, outdoor garden theatre.
Finally, the college is extremely close to the West Road Concert Hall, a wonderful venue which is the centre of music-making both for the University and the City: from Robinson it's about 2 minutes' walk.
The Robinson College Music Society is open to all with an interest in music. It arranges a varied programme of concerts in the Auditorium and in the Chapel.
