As student musicians it is important to offer something back to the community, especially as the local Durham community are always so keep to support us. At Music Durham we are committed to our Outreach projects and student involvement in the community. If you would like to be involved in outreach work then we have something for you.

The Durham University Palatinate Orchestra invite over 500 local primary school children to the Gala Theatre to perform to them and teach them about the instruments of the orchestra in an exciting and interactive way.

Northern Lights, Durham’s a cappella ensemble, performed to the Children’s Ward of Freeman’s Hospital over Christmas.

The Durham University Brass Band have created a Schools Team to visit local primary schools and give assemblies about brass banding and some short performances, as well as working with beginner brass players.
