The contemporary music scene at Sevenoaks School is overseen by Mr Nick Beston and attracts a huge following in the school.
Many gigs are organised by the students themselves and include charity pop concerts and competitions. We also hold concerts for the school’s two jazz bands as well as concerts given by the jazz club and gospel choir. The school’s two showpiece concerts, Crash into Christmas and Sevenoaks Swings, come at the end of the Michaelmas and Lent terms and are hugely popular.
The school also encourages participation in contemporary classical music, with a Composers' Corner that meets weekly. Here, students compose their own new music for performance by choirs and other groups. There is also a songwriters' club and songwriters' concert.
