JCMS Orchestra is the hub of music in Jesus College and provides many opportunities for the numerous talented musicians in college to perform some of the best music that exists in the classical repertoire together. The 2017/2018 season promises to be as exciting as ever with great contrasts of music from the best and most memorable tunes to the rediscovery of great music that is rarely performed.

Recent concerts have featured Prokofiev, Mozart, Schubert, Khachaturian, Satie, and Mendelssohn's famous violin concerto, as well as the premier performance of a special commission by Sebastian Black and music from 'The Lord of the Rings', 'The King's Speech', and 'Les Misérables'.

JCMS Orchestra normally rehearses on Monday evenings in the Chapel.
