The Group has developed a most enjoyable and mutually rewarding relationship with the University and is grateful for the support it receives both from the Vice-Chancellor and the Head of Music.
The programme is full of variety and includes concert appearances by well-known artists and ensembles, illustrated lecture recitals and guest appearances by international celebrities.
The Group provides the concert opportunity and prizes at the popular Annual Student Showcase Concert, as well as bursaries for deserving students from the Robert Headley Fund. Established in 2003, the Fund has to date awarded prizes, granted bursaries and purchased instruments worth more than £90,000.
Members pay an annual subscription for the full programme of nine meetings. Alternatively, visitors are welcome to any meeting for a ticket price of £15 payable at the door or may pre-book on 01243 378900. Visit the FMG website for further details.
