Music on Mondays is a performance platform for students and teachers to showcase their musical talents. The series is the brainchild of Art Department Head Merril Hope-Brown, who said, "Music on Mondays is an idea to get more RC people performing and more people listening to live music as part of their 'ordinary' day. Lunchtime concerts previously have been a bit too long for teachers and students to commit to the whole performance because they have lessons to go to. The Music on Mondays performances are just fifteen minutes, so everyone has enough time to eat lunch and stay to hear it all."
The most recent concert, on May 7, featured originial music by Lise 11 student Alper Güneş, who played piano with violinist Eftalya Ülger L11. Previous performances have included L9 student Sarp Özdemir (piano), L10 students Cem Vural (guitar) and Burla Nur Elçi (vocals), physics teacher Cem Pulathaneli (guitar and vocals), L12 students Çağla Erdoğan (vocals) and Defne Demirer (piano), and a quartet made up of Burçe Ataman L11 (vocals), İbrahim Melih Öztürkmen L10 (guitar), Eftalya Ülger L11 (violin), and Arman Yağcı L12 (piano). Performers from previous years included teachers as well as students from 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade. Music on Mondays takes place in the Faculty Parlour, Marble Hall, at 11.50 and 13.20.
