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

Why not study for a degree at Europe's leading centre for the study of music from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and their diasporas? Located in the heart of a city famous for its thriving and diverse musical cultures, we offer a BA in Music  — which may be taken as a stand-alone programme or in a wide range of combined degrees with other subjects — and a BA in Global Popular Music. We also offer Master’s degrees in Ethnomusicology, Performance, Music in Development, the Global Creative and Cultural Industries, and an MPhil/PhD in music research. Find out more.

Did you know? During the summer we run our popular SOAS Music Summer School. Why not get some hands on experience in learning a new music style or instrument? We offer a range of courses for all levels - take your pick from our course programme!
