Do you want to be inspired, relaxed, moved or simply entertained? Classical music is varied and can cater for every occasion. Stretching back over 500 years, there’s something for every taste, and once you find the pieces you enjoy – there is simply nothing quite like it.

We’re very proud to present such an exciting and varied season of concerts, but we know the sheer volume can be overwhelming! So if you’re new to classical music and not sure where to start, then here are a few suggestions.

You might even want to try one of our Friday afternoon concerts – it’s the same music, but the conductors and soloists will also give an introduction from stage.

Why not watch one of our 2017/18 live streamed concerts. Live streamed concerts give you the opportunity to experience classical music no matter where you are in the world - bringing live classical music to you in the comfort of your own home.

Head to our Spotify channel to find our Beginners' Playlist, featuring works from each of the Starter Collection concerts.

The 'Related Events' section below contains details of all the concerts in the 2018-19 Starter Collection.
