Take time out and enjoy free music in the beautiful surroundings of Manchester Cathedral – you might even discover the UK’s next big talent!

The cathedral, part of Manchester’s Medieval Quarter, has announced a new series of lunchtime recitals by students from Chetham’s School of Music. There are piano recitals and a programme called ‘Music for a While,’ which showcases the talent of individuals as they perform with accompanists. The music choices vary so there’s always something new to discover.

We believe that the true wonder of music is that it can bring people together and have a profound effect on quality of life. We aim to make music more accessible to more people so everyone can experience this, and the students are at the heart of this mission.

Concerts are free and no booking is required – just turn up, sit back and enjoy.

You’ll also be supporting the next generation of musicians as they hone their skills.

Find out about upcoming events.
