Keep Music Playing

Our stages may be dark, but we find light and inspiration from our wonderful community of gifted musicians.

Over the coming weeks, we will be seeking out and sharing beautiful musical treasures drawn from our archive of performances, together with new contributions from our staff, students and alumni.

We hope to offer you creative inspiration for new ways of connecting, as we navigate these uncharted waters. Each week we’ll be sharing updates and musical treats to help combat social and cultural isolation and ensure we #KeepMusicPlaying.

For the musicians (or budding musicians) out there, we’d also love you to submit any beautiful stories or performances for our #KeepMusicPlaying campaign, so we can share them across our community. Please do send any suggestions to development@rncm.ac.uk.
