Chapel and Choir
The educational, cultural and social benefits the College receives from the work of the Choir are enormous. As a College team, the Choir has the ability to travel furthest as an ambassador for Magdalen, and as a conduit through which old members can keep in touch. For example, sending the Choir to the USA or releasing a recording that has genuine research and performance value can enhance the position of the College not just in Oxford but on the world stage.
Although the Choir is fortunate to receive a small number of specific endowment trusts to support its life and work, a large part of the annual running costs is covered by the College’s general budget. As Magdalen responds to further funding cuts in higher education then the Choir will be ever more dependent on the generosity of its friends and alumni.
