About Me

This site is run by Jane Shuttleworth. I spend as much of my life as I can get away with absorbed in music – listening, performing, reading, writing – and telling other people about it. This site is a place for me to bring all these together, and, I hope to provide something useful for other people in Durham while I’m at it. My interests are choral music, early music and modern music.

Note

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.
