The University of Hull and Hull Chamber Music have been working together since Hull Chamber Music was founded in 1948. A principal founder, Robert Marchant, Director of Music at what was then the University College of Hull, and its concerts have always been held in the University’s 400-seat Middleton Hall, with a warm acoustic and excellent sightline.
In 2013, the partnership developed into an artistic one, with pairs of concerts being presented by both organisations.
Internationally acclaimed artists such as Malcolm Martineau OBE, Thomas Gould and the Berkeley Ensemble give pairs of concerts, with varied programmes, fitting the mood of each concert series.
In addition to the partnership allowing old favourites of the repertoire to be performed alongside new commissions and less well-known works, it enables Music students to engage with the ensemble over a two-day period, to listen to and compare a diverse range of works, and to participate in masterclasses with experienced professional musicians.
The University of Hull and Hull Chamber Music eagerly await the re-opening of Middleton Hall this Autumn, following a £9 million refurbishment.
