The Music Centre


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.

Elgar’s beautiful Sea Pictures for mezzo soprano has been brilliantly arranged for choir, orchestra and string quartet by Donald Fraser, and we’re delighted to feature the Coull Quartet in this performance by the University of Warwick Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

The orchestra will also take on Elgar’s 1st Symphony, with a spot of Coleridge-Taylor to complete a wonderful afternoon of music making.
