The Verdun Allen Music Foundation offers short courses on the lives and works of famous composers and periods of musical history. During the summer of 2020 we raised £3000 for the Mustard Tree COVID-19 Crisis Fund. In 2021 some donations will go to the Musicians Union COVID 19 Hardship Fund.
Courses run on either Tuesday afternoons (2-4 p.m.) at Luther King House in Fallowfield (see photo above). Each course offers an opportunity to explore well-known pieces of music and to meet other like-minded music lovers.
