The Martlet Ensemble

The Martlet Ensemble (TME) was created in 2014 by with the intention of establishing Univ as a centre of musical excellence in Oxford. The ensemble consists of internationally renowned musicians who come to Univ to perform and to coach students here. TME is Univ's own ensemble in residence and this relationship has been secured until the end of the 2017/18 academic year.

Its dual function is to provide not only professional music-making in College, but also tailor-made coaching and performing opportunities for Univ musicians. It has been proven that students who have reached a high standard on a musical instrument achieve better degrees due to the rigour of learning involved. We hope that the existence of TME will prove attractive to prospective students, as it represents a collaboration not offered by other colleges.

Each year, as the musicians in college change, so will the projects, thus tailoring the music studied and performed to suit our current musical community.
