The SOAS Concert Series is run by the Department of Music at SOAS.

Why not study for a degree in the largest European centre for world music studies? We run BA, MMus and PhD degree programmes; all focus on world music. Our courses offer great flexibility. Students can specialise in particular music traditions or engage with many different musics and receive high-level training in performance. In the BA, Music can be combined with language studies, Development Studies, Anthropology and many other academic disciplines, while PhD projects can be practice-led, fieldwork-based, or theoretical.
