Guildhall School of Music and Drama Performances

Performance & Collaboration

Studying music at an internationally-renowned conservatoire means you can become immersed in a world of performance from day one. Whatever programme you choose, you will be able to perform, record, compose and collaborate with a range of ensembles. You can also take part in competitions, public showcases and masterclasses with high-profile visiting artists. Our performance facilities, meanwhile, are second to none and include the stunning new Milton Court Concert Hall, the largest of the London conservatoire concert halls with state-of-the-art acoustics.

Our support for your future

Throughout your studies at Guildhall School, we will encourage you to use your craft to benefit others, not just yourself. Believing strongly in the power of music and art to transform people’s lives, we offer training for all undergraduate music students in participatory, community settings, with opportunities to specialise further in this work at postgraduate level. In order to be a 21st-century musician, you will need a broad portfolio of skills. We will provide as much support as we can to prepare you for this exciting, enriching profession.

Public performances

Guildhall presents a full public programme of student concerts, opera and recitals, numbering over 100 every term. These are marketed to London audiences and feature Guildhall musicians from undergraduate level all the way through to Artist Diploma students. Some concerts are streamed online, and many are reviewed by critics from the national press. Visit our events listings for an overview of these exciting performance opportunities.


There is a vast array of Guildhall ensembles, from the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Chorus and Chamber Orchestra through to wind ensembles, brass bands and chamber groups. You will also find dedicated ensembles for jazz, historical performance and new music, or you can form your own ensemble. Read more about recent ensemble activities on our Principal Study pages


Guildhall School offers music students the chance to enter numerous competitions, culminating in the Gold Medal, the School’s most prestigious prize. Previous Gold Medal winners include Jacqueline du Pré, Tasmin Little, and Bryn Terfel.
