  • Visitor Information

The music school where Gustav Hoilst, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Benjamin Britten, James Galway, Joan Sutherland and Ralph Vaughan Williams learnt their trades also hosts a regular program of concerts in its 19th-century hall. The student orchestras and ensembles are of very near porofessional standard, top intern ational musicians cmoe in for performances and masterclasses, and there is, of course, a chance to spot the next big classical stars. With a little bit of politeness, you can also often sneak into interesting lectures.
