Welcome to the new season of concerts presented by Music for Everyone. Our programme covers the full range, from intimate chamber performances to thrilling, large scale choral and orchestral concerts with top soloists.
Many of our concerts take place in the elegant setting of Nottingham’s Albert Hall, where you can feel closely involved in the music. As ever, there will be a strong sense of occasion, a buzz of excitement, giving a real edge of active pleasure to the performance.
No other concert series offers you such consistently high standards of performance across such a range. Many big-name composers are included in our programmes, alongside artists or works which may be new to you – come and discover!
