Happy New Year!

Hello and a very Happy New Year from the Music Centre!

As the start of term quickly approaches we have a lot of music making to look forward to!

Here are just a few of the highlights:


This term the theme running through the Music Centre focuses on Shakespeare (well, we do border his county after all!) and the music widely associated with his plays. From full length feature performances to modern adaptions, the music of Shakespeare is probably more familiar to you than you think! 

Brass Band welcome Tuba legend Steve Sykes to perform their Butterworth Concert with them as they play  selections from Othello by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and "A time for us" - the love theme from Romeo and Juliet. 

Weds 13th Feb, Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre, Tickets £5(£3) 

Wind Orchestra join forces with local Primary school children to perform a new arrangement of Jonathan Dove's Seaside Postcards, as well as some modern twists on Shakespeare with four dances from West Side Story and the Oscar-Winning film Shakespeare in Love (1999)

Monday 25th February, Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre, Tickets £5(£3) 

Symphony Orchestra and Chorus present Verdi's Macbeth - in full and in Italian, with outstanding Icelandic Baritone Olaf Sigurdason in the title role of Othello, heading up a cast of international performers

Tuesday 11th March, Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre, Tickets £6(£4)

As well as Shakespeare, we have other delights of the stage, with MTW presenting Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in the Theatre, Warwick Arts Centre from the 23rd - 26th January, Tickets £9 (£6.50)

Keep your eyes peeled for further information on all Music Centre events coming soon! Details of Arts Centre concerts can be found on the Music Centre website or the Arts Centre website and booking pages.
