A MUSICON performance at Durham Cathedral



An introduction from our Chair

From October to the end of April, the 55th season of MUSICON will bring more brilliant and inspiring performances to Durham, from intimate viol consorts and passionate Romantic chamber music to reimaginations of medieval trobairitz repertoire and transcendental modern piano music in Durham Cathedral.

The full season is now published; tickets can be bought online in advance. You can also buy tickets on the door for all events. We look forward to seeing you at a concert soon! ~ James weeks, MUSICON chair.
