Under the headline ‘New series brings musical excellence to South London’, Croydon’s Fairfields Halls announce their new ‘international’ series.

Want to know what’s in it?

Just one event so far.

The Armenian State Symphony Orchestra will launch the venue’s 2023/24 International Orchestral Concert Series with a concert in honour of the 120th anniversary of renowned Armenian composer, Aram Khachaturian.

Held under the auspices of the Embassy of Armenia to the UK, this event celebrates the power of classical music and culture in bringing communities together across borders.

The venue is also giving young people the opportunity to be inspired by international music excellence, by making tickets for under 18s free (when accompanied by an adult), with a view to inspiring the next generation of classical music lovers.

You put on a one-off ‘international’ concert, can’t sell tickets and have to give them all away.
