Music Resonates in University of Leicester Richard Attenborough Centre

October 2002
No 226

A number of courses focusing on vocal performance, West African Drumming, Song-writing and Music Appreciation are running at the Richard Attenborough Centre all through the autumn term.

Every Tuesday and Thursday between 12.45 and 1.45pm ‘Lunchtime sound bites’ offer an informal atmosphere with live musical performances from a variety of traditions.

The autumn music programme shows a wide variety of melodious activity blending students, schools and colleges and professionals and amateurs.

Music continues to resound with a performance on November 12 by the award winning Guthlaxon Big Band, playing a dazzling mixture of classic standards and jazz or rock numbers.

Leicester Grammar School will give a recital of solos, duets and chamber music on November 19, and December 3 will have a recital of solos and more chamber music from students of Guthlaxon College.

A highlight of the RAC’s autumn programme will be October 30, when the international cellist Matthew Barley will return to the Centre with the group Between the Notes, creating a display of classical music with jazz, Indian, African, funk, dance, pop, all of which results in a performance rich in music treats and surprises.

There will also be an interactive workshop on the same day between 3 –5pm by Between the Notes. Additional Information about the workshop is available from Philip Herbert at the RAC.

The autumn programme concludes on November 23 with the first in a series of concerts ‘presenting young musicians’, sponsored by HSBC.

Further information on these events or ticket sales is available from the University of Leicester Richard Attenborough Centre, telephone 0116 252 2455, email
