Both sessions now sold out – get tickets for our next Terra Musica concerts in July here.

Come explorers! Get ready to travel across the world to discover new tales and tunes exploring who we are, and where we come from.

Awen Blandford, and our students from Chetham’s School of Music invite you to dance, sing and play along with folk music and stories from the beautiful Welsh Valleys. Part of Manchester Song Festival 2024, this family workshop and performance will explore Welsh traditions, language and of course, singing!

Here we go!

Perfect for children aged 5 – 7 and their family, Terra Musica weaves together different musical cultures, celebrating our different backgrounds through fun and engaging performances.  

‘This is how a kids concert should be done.’ – Audience Feedback from Terra Music November 2023.
