Appreciations of Luton Music…
'It's always exciting to visit Luton Music. The dynamism and talent of the performers it attracts, the warm welcome shown to musicians and audiences, that rich history stretching over seven decades... Music in Luton is flourishing thanks to the drive and energy of LM -
BBC music presenter
‘Luton Music is hugely admired for regularly bringing the most exciting and enterprising classical music events to the people of Luton and district, who should be proud to support it.’
Lord McKenzie of Luton
'Luton Music provides each year a wonderful programme of quality classical music played by professional musicians of the highest calibre. It makes am immense contribution to Luton’s vibrant music culture and enables local music lovers, young and old, to hear fine live music in the centre of Luton. It complements the work of the Luton Music Service and especially Luton’s superb and nationally renowned Youth Music.'
Kelvin Hopkins MP
‘Luton Music has been providing excellent music events for many years. They are well organised, bringing professional artists to Luton who provide exciting and varied performances over their programme of events.’
Cllr. Hazel Simmons
Leader, Luton Borough Council
‘I can say, without fear of contradiction, that no other music club in Britain provides such rich and varied fare for such a reasonable price. The performers are of the very highest standard, the choice of music wonderfully varied. Remember, if you want live music to survive in Luton, it’s not up to somebody else – it’s up to YOU!’
Antony Hopkins CBE
‘Congratulations to the Luton Music Club… for its enterprise, scope and diversity… I may add that I am most proud and grateful that two concerts are being devoted to my works in celebration of my 80th birthday…’
Sir William Walton
‘I am quite certain that the variety and richness of English musical life stem from the enterprise of organisations like the Luton Music Club. With imaginative programme planning and a diversity of accomplished guest performers, the Luton club has been able to provide its audiences with constant stimulation and artistic rewards for some decades. I trust it will always have the support it truly merits.’
Sir Michael Tippett
‘I have a great admiration for the achievement of the Luton Music Club… I also have a very happy memory of my last visit to the Club and of enjoying its friendly atmosphere.’
Sir Lennox Berkeley
‘The club goes out of its way to offer opportunities for students in the town, from workshops with professional musicians to free tickets for concerts. Luton Music Club is something the town should be very proud of.’
Mel Coyle, course manager for music at Luton 6th Form College
‘…the Music Club’s wish to encourage music lovers to experience live music in their own town – and at such a very reasonable cost – is one which is very dear to my own heart.’
Music on Mondays…
…is a weekly series of diverse concerts from September to March.
The accessible programming ranges from Bach to Britten, Dowland to Duke Ellington and Rameau to Rautavaara.
Five centuries of music played live in the comfortable ambience of Luton's Library Theatre by international soloists and ensembles.
After three seasons celebrating British composers our next series of concerts will concentrate on presenting work written by female composers. This initiative, called Half the World, aims to programme 50 % of all that is played over the next 12 months to have been written by women. Our artists have warmed to this challenge and some very interesting repertoire is planned. More details can be found here and full details will be published in the next two months.
