You can’t fail to notice the redevelopment underway in the Paradise area of Birmingham City Centre, as part of which Birmingham Conservatoire loses its Adrian Boult Hall ahead of its move to a brand new venue in 2017.

The hall has been a musical home to many world class musicians and Conservatoire students that have passed through its doors. It has also fulfilled a central role in the cultural fabric of Birmingham as a performance, rehearsal and recording space for a wealth of professional, semi-professional community and young musicians and arts organisations. With City of Sounds we tell the stories and history of this dual role and say goodbye to the much-loved hall, as we look ahead to an exciting future.

City of Sounds is a one-of-a-kind event in Birmingham’s history, paving the way for the sounds of a future yet to unfold. With everything from classical and jazz to new music and folk, enjoy a summer of music making at its most collaborative, and a demonstration of Birmingham as the true City of Sounds.
