Music in the Air returns to Southampton Airport Friday evenings at Southampton Airport are being given a musical twist this summer as the airport plays host to a series of short musical performances by talented local musicians.

The fun begins today Friday 16th May.

Music in the Air is a collaboration between Southampton Music Service (the lead organisation for the Southampton Music Hub) and Southampton Airport.

It’ll see a range of musicians from saxophonists to acoustic rock bands, youth swing groups and electric string acts entertain passengers as they arrive and depart.

Hazel Screech, Terminal Operations Manager said:

We are very excited to offer a second season of live music for our passengers. Working with Southampton Music Service allows us to showcase local talent while providing a warm welcome for our passengers.”

Each Friday evening will feature a different group of musicians and style of music to keep the terminal entertainment fresh and lively.

Alita Mills, Southampton City Council Music Services Director said:

Southampton Music Service is looking forward to the next season of Music in the Air and is proud to work in partnership with Southampton Airport. This initiative has brought about a fresh approach to live performance for local musicians and has provided great entertainment for passengers, guests and staff in the airport. This season’s line up of musical artists will continue to offer a breadth of musical styles and genres… what a great way to start or end a journey!”

Music in the Air begins at Southampton Airport today with a performance from Groove Merchant at 5pm.

Performances will then run on Friday evenings until 11th July (with a break for half term on 30th May) from 5:30pm. Music in the Air is free and open to all passengers and the local community alike.
