Coming up...


Hello Summer!

Summer is upon us and we're looking back on a great year here at DMU Music, in which we've produced 50 concerts, workshops and projects with over 370 participating DMU students, members of staff and the Leicestershire community.

We're delighted to have been able to collaborate on our projects with our wonderful partners at the Philharmonia Orchestra, Darbar Arts, Leicester Jazz House and the Leicester-Shire Music Hub, as well as great local organisations such as Bullfrog Arts, HMP Leicester and Singing for the Brain Leicester.

This summer we'll be busy planning an entire new year of music at DMU! Watch this space or sign up to our newsletter to get any music updates straight to your inbox.
