Creative Engagement at Chetham’s and The Stoller Hall

Support increasing access to music

Music has the ability to unlock creativity and inspire connection. It is a joyful universal language that connects people and cultures – whether you’re playing, making, or listening.  

Everybody should have opportunity to experience music in a dynamic and engaging way, and our Creative Engagement programme is designed just for that; to bring children, young people, families, and adults together to explore their creativity and enjoy the transformative power of music.  

Working collaboratively and being a part of a wider community is in our nature. As a specialist music school and concert venue, we can offer our expertise, experience, and spaces to partners and participants alike to create meaningful engagement; whether that’s in a music making workshop for early years, a concert performance for a school group, or a CPD training session with teachers.  

To ensure we’re able to share our music with everyone, we offer a tiered pricing system as well as subsidised and free tickets to those who need financial support. Our campaign, The Gift of Music, will support a wider programme of creative engagement and performances which will provide musical opportunities to very young children and their families in Greater Manchester.

Without the support of individuals and trusts and foundations, none of this work would be possible. 

 I would like to support Creative Engagement and give the gift of music
