The Choir of Trinity College is world renowned and is considered one of the best college chapel choirs in the southern hemisphere.

Our a cappella groups, the Tiger Tones and the Candystripes, tour locally and internationally, and we regularly host performances to give a platform to our musically gifted students.

Trinity College provides an environment where all musical tastes, interests and abilities are embraced.

Music practice rooms and extracurricular tutorials

We've got dedicated music practice rooms in the Gateway Building and a dedicated music room in the basement of the residential Dorothy Building. There are a variety of performance spaces and venues across campus. Trinity College has two grand pianos, a harpsichord and a drum kit. Students are encouraged to bring their own instruments and continue their music studies, maintain their practice, and form groups with other students. Tutorials in introductory piano and guitar are offered to resident students as part of the extracurricular tutorial program.
