Where is Chart Music Going Today?

Cheryl Chow takes a look back at the last ten years of music and has compiled a timeline of the top hits of the previous ten years (2003-2013). We hope that this commentary provides some more “throwback” memories, continuing on from Mufti Day last week. What do you think about the music of today? Do you think that we’ll be dancing to these tunes in our old age?

Professor Lisa Jardine CBE is an internationally renowned scholar and, fittingly for College’s 160th anniversary Principal’s lecture, an ex CLC girl.

International Music: French Favourites

If ever asked to describe the CLC community in one, all-encompassing word, I don’t think I would hesitate. ‘Eclectic’ would be my reply, and for good reason.

In the chaos and activity that is CLC life, we often forget to appreciate these details – the details that the Our Stories Project aims to bring to light.
