Chetham’s is the largest specialist music school in the UK and is the only one based in the North of England. The school is also a national and international resource for music education – welcoming teachers, professional players, composers and conductors, community groups, school children and other young musicians, both experienced and novices, to come together and make music. This is the result of many different qualities that permeate the fabric of Chetham’s: the warm and welcoming atmosphere, the daily creative buzz, admirable academic standards, its history and heritage, its superb teaching and performance spaces, the city of Manchester as a cosmopolitan location, its many different backgrounds and personalities – and of course, the music.
Free admission, no booking required.
