A word from the Principal (Feb 2019)

John Keeley

One of the joys of being a musician, artist or actor are the opportunities this brings to collaborate with others. We have a wonderful range of talented learners and Tutors across all of the Conservatoire’s disciplines, and we want to give these members of our community opportunities to celebrate and share their passion as widely as possible.

We are launching an ambitious events programme which we hope will not only build our culture of celebration, but also bring the work of our learners and Tutors to new audiences. The programme contains a much expanded range of exhibitions, concerts, recitals, masterclasses and new original work.

You can browse the current events programme here.

We are also taking our music out to the local community with a Friday Recital Series in some of our beautiful local churches.

Some forthcoming highlights include…

Aesop’s Fables 24th March, 2.30pm & 4pm
Last year’s Aesop Fables was so popular, we decided to bring this magical family concert back.
