New Worlds Beyond Your Elsewhere
Message from the Director of Music, Paul McGrath
As the dust of polystyrene snowflakes begins to settle today, I feel struck by the enthusiasm and the emotionalism of all of you yesterday... and I feel the snow globe being shaken again and again, and in that swirl I can distinctly perceive that a plan was conceived and delivered - delivered by all of you, and delivered so beautifully!
Thank you all for bringing our notated thoughts to life. Our objective now is to find opportunities for the piece beyond yesterday’s premiere!
“... sails tell the stories to the sea... sailor, triumphant, beyond your elsewhere!”
Welcome to Music at Warwick 2017/18
Parts of the Arts Centre are closed for refurbishment for 2017/18.
The Music Centre is now in Westwood- instruments, storage, activity, libraries, equipment, staff, rehearsals etc - all in Westwood.
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!
Ever fancied performing with an orchestra accompanying you?
Now's your chance!
Audition for our concerto competition and you could be performing in one of the Music Centre's main concerts!
