AChetham’s Symphony Orchestra put the finishing touches to a very special virtual concert that will be streaming soon, we look back to one of the most spectacular CSO performances of recent times.  

In 2019 Chetham’s School of Music celebrated its’ 50th anniversary year! 

The centrepiece of the landmark year was a performance from Mahler’s repertoire, Symphony of a Thousand by Chetham’s musicians, accompanied by soloists, instrumentalists and choirs from all corners of the UK, along with international partners from Australia, Norway and beyond. 

Opening with a stirring creation hymn, and closing with the dramatic redemption and ascension of Faust, this mighty symphony is perhaps the greatest symphonic masterpiece in the repertoire; and, perhaps, a reflection on Chetham’s 50 year journey – from its founders’ vision of a unique musical community, to its current position at the very forefront of music education in the UK. 

Performed in The Bridgewater Hall and originally broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, you can relive the live music online as part of our virtual concert series with The Stoller Hall. 

The concert will be streamed on Vimeo

To view, please register for free below and the concert link will be sent to you via email.
