Classical Concerts

Convener

Hilary Smallwood

The Monmouth U3A Concert Trips Group exists to provide classical music lovers with the opportunity to hear world class orchestras and soloists in the sort of concerts that cannot be heard locally.
Trips are to concert venues within a reasonable distance by coach (e.g.Cardiff, Newport, Bristol, Birmingham) and the cost includes tickets and travel – so you can just sit back and enjoy without the hassle of booking, driving and parking.
Recent trips included
Cardiff Millennium Centre to see BBC National Orchestra of Wales perform ‘Enigma Variations’ including Grace Williams – Sea Sketches, Williams Mithais – Concerto for Harp, and Edward Elgar – Enigma Variations
Newport Riverfront Theatre to see BBC National Orchestra of Wales perform ‘American Explorations’ including Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings and Violin Concerto and Charles Ives – Symphony No. 2
There are also classical concerts and choral concerts in Monmouth itself which are advertised for people to come along with friends or alone. Watch the What’s On page What’s On – Monmouth u3a
