Beethoven’s famous 9th Symphony echoed in the rafters of a Leicester church on Saturday 17 June, as the DMU Orchestra celebrated their first birthday in impressive style.

Nearly 200 attended Leicester’s Church of St James the Greater, to celebrate the momentous occasion which DMU’s Music Department had been billing as the highlight of their 2016/17 calendar. It didn’t disappoint.

#DMUglobal BERLIN!

More than 800 students and staff  (including myself)  travelled with DMU to Berlin – one of the biggest European trips ever carried out by a UK university.

The students – from nearly 35 different courses – all had their own itineraries, making visits to businesses, organisations, museums and landmarks which will enrich the studies undertaken on their course.

 

Her Majesty the Queen visited Leicester on Thursday 13 April to attend the Royal Maundy Service at Leicester Cathedral.

An estimated 16,000 people lined the route to welcome her to the city.

Members of the public lined the route from Humberstone Gate West, High Street and Jubilee Square, with the hour-long service broadcast live on giant screens in Jubilee Square and at the Clock Tower.

DMU Music Department Rehearsal

Prisoners have been inspired by the beauty of live classical music, thanks to a special De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) String Orchestra concert.

The historic performance took place within the walls of Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Leicester and it is believed to be one of the first concerts of this kind to be performed in the UK.

Toast Inn, Francis Street, Stoneygate

I had the pleasure of visiting this place, it’s a little gem in the heart of Stoneygate. If your a gin lover (like myself) then you have 39 varieties to choose from. Oooh you little beauty!
