Concerts in the North and Midlands

We are a group of Mahler enthusiasts based in the Midlands and North of England. In 2016 we began GMS-N&M with the aim of creating an interactive informal social group within the GMSUK membership, to coordinate information about Mahler related events in locations north of London, and to meet up from time to time at concerts and other Mahler related events. However we have since gone on to put on our own events, including three successful study days. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Darren, Robin, Derek or Penny for more details.
