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).

Visions Season - New and Mindful Visions

In ‘Mindful Visions’ the music programme has looked at the human psychology, connecting the sense of self to visions. The 1920s programme explores the Roaring Twenties when an new vision of post-war positivity was coming to the fore. This was eagerly demonstrated with new ideas in dance, music and songs – jazz music became the rage with its catchy rhythms and slick, sophisticated song lyrics.
