Following government advice, and alongside other UK arts organisations, Warwick Arts Centre is temporarily ceasing its building-based activities. The Music Centre will remain closed until the new year.
We desperately miss making music with all our wonderful students and ensembles, and look forward to doing so again as soon as we’re able to. In particular, we can’t wait to meet the Freshers and find out what new musical talents we have in our midst! In the meantime, here is some information about the current status of our services on offer.
PRACTICE ROOMS AND INSTRUMENT STORAGE:
Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer these services whilst the Music Centre is closed. We will update the website as and when this changes.
MUSIC CENTRE OFFICE:
Lucy Hollins (Assistant Director of Music) and Lizzy Whyte (Administrator) and James Vegnuti (Assistant Administrator) are currently on flexible furlough and will respond to urgent queries as soon as possible, but there may be some delay due to the nature of our current working hours.
The Music Centre normally offers a range of individual instrumental and vocal tuition. Due to the current circumstances we are unable to offer this in the Music Centre at the moment. However, some of our tutors are offering online tuition. If you are interested you are welcome to contact them for information. Their details can be found on our tuition page.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND BURSARIES:
Our scholarship and bursary auditions were unable to take place at the start of this term. We very much hope to reschedule these auditions for later in the year, but when this happens depends on when the Music Centre re-opens. Please check the website again soon for any news on this.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. There WILL be music again, as soon as we’re able to be together.
Lucy, Lizzy and James
Welcome to Music at Warwick
The Music Centre is in the heart of campus inside the Warwick Arts Centre
There's no music degree here at Warwick, and so everything we do here is for all students and staff to enjoy, no matter what their subject is! We've got societies from all musical genres, tuition is available and there are rooms for practice and performance. We are proud to be one of the most dynamic university music centres in the UK which doesn't actually run a music degree!
The Music Centre is located within Warwick Arts Centre, the largest venue of its kind in the UK outside the Barbican Centre in London. Our larger ensembles regularly perform in its 1500-seat Butterworth Hall, whilst our smaller groups make frequent use of the two Theatres, the Butterworth Hall, Helen Martin Studio and a dedicated Ensemble Room.
Following government advice, and alongside other UK arts organisations, Warwick Arts Centre is temporarily ceasing its building-based activities and will return after this interval.
Many thanks for your understanding and patience.
