Department of Music events

The Department of Music hosts public concerts, seminars and conferences throughout the academic year, presented by visiting international researchers, composers and performing musicians, alongside our talented students and staff.

Our vibrant concert series includes experimental new music and world music, chamber recitals and innovative work from our sound studios, reflecting the diversity of the department's research interests. Most of the concerts are free to attend and held in the newly refurbished Performance Space in the College Building.
