Music

From cutting-edge contemporary classical music to the magnificent live performances of the Peninsula Arts Sinfonietta, there is a musical experience for everyone.

Through the commissioning and development of new music, alongside supporting new talent and bringing world-class musicians to Plymouth, Peninsula Arts is pivotal to the growing music scene across the South West; this includes our programme of participatory community music partnership activities.

The ‘new music’ flagship event is the annual Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival, promoted in partnership with Plymouth University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR).

Voices Season - Uncovering Voices

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

Ever since the dawn of humanity, voice has always been our primary source for communication. This season’s music programme traverses the pure polyphony of Palestrina to 21st-century beat-box and electronic vocalise.
