Lunchtime concerts are back!

Take a lunch break and enjoy free weekday afternoon recitals by some of the UK’s most exciting young musicians!

Returning to Manchester’s cultural calendar for autumn-winter 2021, for the first time since before the pandemic, the concerts feature emerging talent from some of the UK’s up and coming musicians alongside students from Chetham’s, the UK’s leading music school.

The performers will take to the stage at The Stoller Hall at Chetham’s from November 2021 to entertain audiences with a series of lunchtime concerts and educational masterclasses led by the performers. The carefully curated series includes early career musicians, beginning to develop their practice on the world’s stage. The programmes will blend original pieces with new arrangements and commissions to offer something new for audiences to experience.

The masterclasses showcase music and education of the highest calibre, enabling musicians and audiences to develop their talent, skills and knowledge. They are free for lunchtime concert ticket holders, or £2.50 for audiences who wish to attend the masterclass independently of the concert. They are made possible with support from the Haworth Charitable Trust.

You can explore the programme below.
