The music of springtime

Along with sunnier days and warmer weather, March is brimming with music of every kind. St George's Bristol is reopening with a host of celebrations starting with their glittering Gala Concert: and after months of building work their lunchtime concerts are finally back on, starting with guitarist Mark Ashford on 15 March. Colston Hall also have a busy month with two performances by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, celebrating popular film music with Hollywood Concerto on 22 March and Heroes & Monsters on 12 April - and for another classical music favourite, join the Bristol Choral Society & Bristol Youth Choir for Carmina Burana on 10 March. Celebrate the springtime with a little bit of music for everyone this month.
