Music Centre

The Music Centre offers the chance for everyone to enjoy making music while providing exceptional opportunities for those with particular expertise as singers or instrumentalists. It provides a programme of concerts and public events along with regular visits from internationally renowned performers. 

The University also offers excellent musical facilities, which will be enhanced still further in 2020 with the opening of a purpose-built new Music Centre.

The Music Centre’s leading ensembles, which include St Salvator’s Chapel Choir, Byre Opera and the St Andrews Chamber Orchestra, regularly perform to the highest standards both locally and across the UK. 

The Music Centre is open to everyone, from absolute beginners to experienced musicians, whether they want to take lessons, play in groups, practise or just come and listen. 

The Director of Music is Dr Michael Downes.
