Friday series

Our Friday Series of lunchtime concerts feature symphonic repertoire and other ensembles. 

This long-running series is designed to give local audiences the chance to hear the very most promising performers of the future, and to witness the Academy’s vibrant working environment.

Our Friday Series of lunchtime concerts has become exceptionally popular in recent years. To cover some of our ticketing and stewarding costs for these events, we have introduced a modest charge for the full orchestral performances in the Friday Series.
