The Department of Music at York is one of the liveliest in the country, with a busy schedule of performance activities.
The range of study, performance and composition is extremely wide, both within our taught courses and at research level. Our staff includes distinguished scholars, composers and performers.
The Department is saddened to hear of the death of Lady Roslyn Lyons. Along with her husband Sir Jack Lyons, she was a constant supporter of the Department and will be remembered fondly by all here for her passion for music. The Department is fortunate to have many of her paintings and this year's Lyons Celebration Concert, on 25 June 2014, will be dedicated to her memory.
Enter our Department and you can feel a buzz of creative energy from the 200 students and large staff of world-leading professional musicians engaged in studying, creating and performing music of all kinds.
York is the first choice for performance, composition and scholarship. Our distinctive course enables you to specialise and gives you the choice to define your own programme. We only teach in small groups, through our renowned ‘project system’, and teach exclusively from our research.
We look forward to welcoming you to our lively, friendly and internationally respected Department.
Dr Ambrose Field
Head of Department, Music
