Lunchtime Concert: A Celebration of Benjamin Britten

This week, we celebrate the great British composer Benjamin Britten, by dedicating our Friday lunchtime concert to his incredible work: Six Metamorphoses after Ovid.

Each week, our online lunchtime concerts showcase the work of our young Chetham’s musicians, who have been learning remotely throughout lockdown.

This week, our students perform a piece of programme music for solo oboe, which was written by Britten in 1951. It was inspired by a poem by Latin poet Ovid, and each musical piece represents a character from Roman mythology.

Watch live, this Friday at 1.30pm, on the Chetham’s YouTube channel.
