Chapel Music

St Hugh’s has an enthusiastic and talented Chapel Choir, drawn from members of all three common rooms. It meets to rehearse every Friday at 5.00pm (4.45pm for tea and cake, and followed by supper in College), and at 4pm on Sundays, sings a wide repertoire of music, and is always open to new members.

Our Senior Organ Scholar for 2013-14 is Michael Dawson:  michael.dawson@st-hughs.ox.ac.uk
