RBC Symphony Orchestra is delighted to return to the Bradshaw Hall for its largest orchestral concert since before the pandemic, to celebrate the Music Since 1900 conference and to mark the end of the academic year.

In the first half RBC’s Daniele Rosina leads the orchestra in four pieces from the current century, including music by Conservatoire staff and alumni; and then Ludovic Morlot, who is also working with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in June, will join us for two works by Czech composers: Martinů’s memorial to the village of Lidice is followed by Janáček’s epic Sinfonietta.

This spring, summer and autumn we are celebrating the distinctiveness of BCU and the impact our unique university has on the world around us, with a wide range of events on our campuses, across the city, and beyond. 

BCU 2025 features events, performances, conferences and community activities, running between May and November, as well as opening the doors to new additions to our stunning new City Centre Campus. 

This celebration of BCU picks up the key themes of our 2025 Strategy, with an events programme that brings to life the mission which underpins our institution – to be the University for Birmingham, and to enable people to transform their lives.  

All the activities celebrate our contribution to the city and region, and to our students, through excellence in education, research and knowledge exchange.   

We want to celebrate BCU with our communities – our staff and students, our graduates, our partners, the people who live and work alongside us, and many more besides, reconnecting longstanding relationships and forging new links.
