Music hosts a wide range of events including two lunchtime concert series, national and international conferences, composition workshops and performance projects.

The ‘Music @1pm’ Monday lunchtime concert series at the Turner Sims Concert Hall brings outstanding professional musicians to the University to help our students develop their understanding of performance and repertoire. Along with these visiting performers students from Music also perform in concerts and open exam recitals at Turner Sims, often as part of the Friday concert series. All lunchtime concerts are open to the public and admission is free.

Special performance projects are one-off events that bring departmental forces together for major works, new music premieres, or exploration of exciting and often little-known repertories. These involve student performers alongside leading professionals and guest artists from within and outside Music; they are open to the public and take place at various venues on campus and in the city. Check the listings for information and ticketing for individual events.

The composition workshop series provide the opportunity for both undergraduate and postgraduate composers to hear their works performed by specialist visiting performers. All are very welcome to attend.
