Have you ever been to a concert and wished you knew more about the music and the composer?

Join us for Concert and a Cuppa, a series of informal pre-concert talks which take place over a cup of tea.

An Introduction to Concert and a Cuppa

Concert and a Cuppa is a series of informal pre-concert talks written and led by Trinity Laban’s passionate and knowledgeable students. They provide an interesting and enlightening insight into the composer and music in the performance that lies ahead, enhancing your concert experience.

Our next Concert and a Cuppa will be…

Andy Armistead Vocal Class – A vocal department class performance led by professor Chris Underwood

St Alfege Church, Greenwich Church St, SE10 9BJ

Hear what our student presenters have to say:

‘It was very enjoyable to prepare and present a couple of sets of music by one of my favourite composers, Elmo Hope. I learned a lot from the experience and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to share this music with an appreciative audience.’


With special thanks to our mentors for providing support to all Concert and a Cuppa presenters.

We look forward to welcoming you to our series of pre-concert talks in the autumn. Can’t wait till then? Take a look at our recorded content below and be sure to subscribe to our ‘regular concert series in Greenwich’ mailing list to receive details of our upcoming events.
