About this Event

Join us for Season 2 of our popular Quiet Concert Series!

Lost Treasures: Forgotten Masterpieces for 19th-Century Guitar.

Jamie Akers, guitars.


Do you love music, but find the whole concert experience overwhelming? Do you need a time out from essay writing or a busy social calendar? Then these concerts may be for you. We have thought about some of the sensory issues that can keep people away from many events and made some small but important adjustments.


What we will do differently includes:

  • Asking audiences for quiet applause, such as only using 2 fingers from each hand, patting the leg, or using the BSL sign for applause
  • Keeping the concert to one hour in length and having breaks between pieces every 10 minutes so that you can move around, wriggle or chat quietly for a few minutes
  • Keeping light levels low
  • Using rugs, cushions and benches as well as chairs so that you can sit how you prefer
  • Keeping numbers down to avoid crowding
  • Choosing relatively quiet instruments from the University’s world-famous Musical Instrument Collection and not using electric amplification
  • Scheduling in the afternoon so you don’t have to travel home in the dark or when the streets are too busy
  • Providing a space in the Laigh Hall to escape to if you need it


The musicians who will be performing are all highly skilled, so you will experience top-quality music making.


If this appeals to you, why not come along?
