Autumn 2016 concerts

A run-down of some of the concerts taking place in Durham over the next few months, including one of the world’s greatest early music groups, baroque opera, Messiah, Royal Northern Sinfonia at Ushaw, and a world premiere performed by Orchestra North East.

Concert previews – Winter 2015

The listings are gradually coming in for the next few months, and based on what I have so far, this winter’s concerts are dominated by early music treats courtesy of Musicon and a particularly rich choice of organ recitals at Ushaw College, Hatfied College and Durham Cathedral. Durham’s local musicians have lots going on too, with music spanning 500 years from John Sheppard to John Dankworth and so far the students have told me about Mozart and Bach.
