CLAIM YOUR FREE CD AT CONCERT SERIES

 

Tickets for the University of Lincoln’s International Concert Series are still available.

 

Season ticket buyers will also receive an exclusive CD featuring highlights from last year’s performances. Samples of the music can also be heard online on the university’s web page at http://www.lincoln.ac.uk/events/concerts.html#freecd.

 

The series will kick off on Sunday 10th October with one of Britain’s most highly regarded young pianists, Ashley Wass, who will be performing a selection of classical music including pieces by Mozart, Brahms, Liszt and Beethoven.

 

The performance is the first in a series of six concerts which feature an array of internationally celebrated artists, including Mi-Kyung Lee and the Pacifica String Quartet, who will all be performing at Lincoln Drill Hall.

 

“The artists who will be performing in this year’s concerts form our best series so far, and are easily on par with the standard of performances that you would expect to see in London,” said the series artistic director and founder Graham Oppenheimer.

 

Each concert will start with a pre-concert talk with the performing artist at 3.30pm, with the concert commencing at 4.15pm.

 

Tickets for the performances are £9, £8 concessions and £4 for students and under 16s. All performances can be viewed with a season ticket priced £48, with a saving of £6 on individual showings.

 

All tickets are obtainable from the Drill Hall box office on 01522 886869, and limited tickets will be available on the door.

 

The International Concert Series is one of the cultural events staged by the Lincoln Academy, the collective name given to the cultural outreach activities of the university.
