Higher Education Presents: Future Grooves

Sage Two

Join us from 2:30pm for a taster of free performances in between our Sage Two shows.

Hosted by our Music Degree students, Future Grooves is a showcase of emerging talent from our BMus (Hons) Jazz, Popular and Commercial Music degree and BA (Hons) Community Music degree.

A range of ensembles will perform both original and covered material including pop, rock and jazz across the festive period. Forget the dark and cold outside and come party with us!

Both degree courses are delivered at Sage Gateshead in partnership with University of Sunderland.
