Our aim is to provide accessible and enjoyable opportunities for students, staff and members of the local community. We bring diverse groups of people together to listen and participate in music in a number of different settings. We also help individuals to realise their musical potential.

We embrace all levels from beginners to advanced performers and provide a supportive, friendly and socially vibrant environment to engage with music.
