Symphony Hall’s collaboration with the iconic Abbey Road Studios continues this month. 
Abbey Road is, of course, the London-located purpose-built recording studio made famous by its association with The Beatles. 

For the past three years, the studio has run the Music Photography Awards. The initiative is designed to champion emerging and undiscovered young photographers, and to celebrate ‘the unforgettable, unique and unsung musical moments’ from the previous 12 months. 

As part of the collaboration, Symphony Hall is hosting a month-long exhibition of work by the 2023 Music Photography Awards nominees and winners.

Across nine categories, including ‘Live’, ‘Icon’, ‘Undiscovered’ and ‘Hip Hop 50’, the exhibition offers a unique opportunity to view the photographs in a distinctive setting. 

A series of masterclasses and panel talks - led by local, established music photographers and Music Photography Awards alumni - also runs across the month, in addition to special performances by emerging Birmingham-based musicians.
