Across May and June, the RNCM is offering a variety of completely free performances for the public to enjoy.

Here are four unmissable events by students from one of the UK’s leading conservatoires, at one of the most diverse public performance venues, all of which will cost you absolutely nothing. 

Spotlight | Wed 4 May

This hour-long early evening series features students from different college courses for each occasion, wherein they create, prepare and showcase their most innovative programmes for an audience. This time, musicians from the School of Keyboard Studies assemble for an eclectic display of contemporary piano works.

Playlist for Parkinson’s | Tue 14 Jun

Building on the pioneering study into the beneficial effects of certain music on those living with Parkinson’s Disease, RNCM students will provide a stunning recital of the pieces which have been uniquely identified as part of the findings. The free performance will form the principal part of a casual concert which includes commentary from research participants.

Spotlight | Fri 17 Jun

This edition of Spotlight focuses on the musicians’ collective interests surrounding folk music; its chronology and the crossovers between traditional and classical pieces. Ranging from Beethoven to Woody Guthrie, the eclectic event features students from several fields of music.

RNCM Composer’s Concert | Wed 29 Jun
