Chetham’s composers have enjoyed great success across the years, with students among the winners of the BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers competition every year since 2009; the Royal Opera House Fanfare competition 2016; and the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers Awards 2016. Their summer concert premieres new works for large ensembles, performed by Chetham’s instrumentalists and conducted, in many cases, by the composers themselves. Join us to support emerging composers in an evening of diverse, innovative and engaging new works.
