Final year music students perform a selection of works from their end of year recital programmes. The Dome, 3rd Floor, Bramall Music Building Admission: Free

The University Symphony Orchestra performs the eighth of Vaughan Williams's nine symphonies, in which the composer shows a new desire for experimentation with tone and colour. This work includes a march-style movement solely for the wind section, followed by a movement for strings, and features a wider variety of percussion instruments than utilised in the previous seven symphonies. Recent graduate Simeon Liley’s new work, Edgbaston in the Rain, was the winning entry for the 2013 UMS Composition Competition, written specifically to feature in a concert with the Vaughan Williams, whilst Joshua Rohde gives a performance of Elgar's Cello Concerto following his success in the UMS Concerto Competition.
