About this event

We are a group of music-lovers who meet every week at the Museum to listen to music and learn about musical traditions inspired by the Horniman collections. 

Join us at our workshops to increase your knowledge and appreciation of music in a warm and inclusive environment. Each week features a different theme where we encouraged participants to discuss and share their thoughts on the music.

Workshops are free to attend and open to adults.
