FREE Taiko Drumming Workshops for DMU students and staff.

DMU students and staff can now learn how to play the Japanese Taiko Drums!

As part of the new #DMUthrive programme we have teamed up with the DMU Mental Health Team and Bullfrog Arts to offer our students and staff weekly Taiko workshops.

The workshops take place every Wednesday during term time from 14:00 - 16:00 at the Chantry Building (Music Hub).

Sign up for the free workshops here.

Play with the DMU Orchestra

The DMU Orchestra was established in 2016 as one strand of a major partnership between DMU and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Since our first concert in June of 2016, the orchestra has now performed 6 concerts in and around Leicester, featuring internationally-renowned soloists and culminating in a performance of Beethoven epic Ninth Symphony to celebrate the Orchestra’s first birthday earlier this year. Rather than rehearse on a weekly basis, the DMU Orchestra meets for several concert projects each year with a schedule of four rehearsals and concert.

The first concert for 2017/2018 will take place on Saturday 16 December, 15:00 with a programme of Mendelssohn and Mozart.
If you play and orchestral instrument and would like to join us for this concert, please get in touch via:
