This Month’s Big Night Out and Recitals Feature Great Performances from Brookes Music Students

Oxford boasts a multitude of performances spaces and opportunities. Brookes music students feature in any number of formal or informal events ranging from the Holywell Music Room to the O2 Academy.

Ensembles and bands play at weddings, music festivals and Oxford college balls. Invitations are extended to perform at prestigious engagements such as university inaugurations and senior management conferences. More recently, jazz trio Three Quarters of a Quartet performed for the Vice Chancellor's Music Evening, resulting in an invitation to play at the post final reception for the Oxford United v Barnsley FC match at Wembley.

Coming up this month are three opportunities to enjoy music from BA Music students, reflecting the varied performance styles embraced by our course.
