Welcome to our Spring Concert Diary!
Whenever it’s time for me to write my ‘welcome note’ for our concert diaries, I am amazed by the breadth and diversity of the music and performers that we will be offering during the months ahead.
This spring diary is no different. In addition to our roster of distinguished visitors – which counts Louis Lortie, Jennifer Pike and Nobuko Imai amongst their number – you can hear music and musicians from across the spectrum and Birmingham Conservatoire-related concerts all over the city.
During the absence of our main concert hall we have been enjoying our performances in venues ranging from Selfridges to Symphony Hall. We have learned a lot and we look forward to continuing our musical activities well beyond the new Conservatoire’s walls.
Regular readers will know that I dislike singling out individual performances but – as they always insist that I must! – please take on board a rare performance of Frederich Gulda’s wacky Concerto for Cello and Wind (20 Jan) and the Birmingham Conservatoire Ellington Orchestra’s inaugural concert (3 Feb).
