Some of the UK’s most exciting young musicians will perform four concerts in one day, at the Bridgewater Hall.
The culmination of a two week music festival at Chetham’s School of Music features all 328 students from the UK’s largest specialist music school.
The landmark event is thought to be the first youth orchestra concert in front of a live audience anywhere in the UK since before the pandemic.
These four performances will feature some of the most talented young musicians in the UK in an eclectic program that also features conductors from the Royal Northern College of Music, along with Tom Redmond, Marcus Farnsworth and Ben Gernon.
Supported by The LHR Charitable Foundation.
Tickets are on sale now, until Monday 5 July, via the Bridgewater Hall box office.
