Welcome

Music in Durham is dedicated to bringing you classical music listings, previews, reviews and news for Durham, with a bit of random blogging thrown in. The what’s on pages bring together classical music events from across the City and the University, so whether you’re looking for a great concert to go to, or if you’re planning something and want to avoid clashes, this is the place to look.
You might have found your way here because you’re looking for the university’s student music site, in which case you need to go to www.musicdurham.org, but I hope you’ll have a look around here too.

If you’re planning a concert, or if you have any other music news, please tell me about it. jane@musicdurham.co.uk.
