GSMD kicks off a new term with the addition of its wonderful, new state of the art concert hall Milton Court. Apart from the numerous opportunities for our student groups to experience performing and rehearsing in a beautiful 650 seater concert hall, we also will have a luxury space to offer our starry array of visiting chamber performers and coaches. The coming term sees the return of our regular visiting quartets, Endellion and Belcea, along with the first visit of Ralf Gothoni as our new International Chair in Keyboard Chamber Music and the appoibtment of Carole Presland as Senior Tutor in Keyboard Chamber Music. To inaugurate the chamber credentials of Milton Court, our Head of Srtings Louise Hopkins will be joining colleagues Thomas Ades, Anthony Marwood and Matthew Hunt for a spectacular recital based around some of the key chamber compositions of Ades.
