Event details

During term-time the Music Department holds a series of free lunchtime concerts at 1pm for the benefit of our students, staff, and the local community. On Mondays you will hear professional musicians, including our own performance teachers, taking the stage so that our students are exposed to the entire spectrum of music making. We invite prominent musicians and the best up-and-coming talent from Britain and abroad. The programmes will delight you, entertain you, and perhaps even challenge you. Workshops are offered after some of the concerts, and you’re very welcome to stay on for these. You can talk to the artists and see them interact with our students.

Wine of the Mystic
A concert of Persian music performing the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám (1048-1123).

 Compositions of Hossein Hadisi take us on a musical journey through the improvisatory traditions of Awaz and Morakkab. Wandering through the Wadi of ancient Persian modes, the enigmatic music and poetry follows Khayyám’s footsteps in his odyssey in search of an answer to his endless “to know who I am” philosophical quest.

Hossein Hadisi, tar, vocals

Fardin Mortazai, tombak, daf
