In this special Lunchtime Concert, we bid goodbye to Head of Accompaniment Brenda Blewett, who’ll be familiar to most of our regular audiences from her performances alongside Chetham’s students over many years. Mrs Blewett leaves the School this summer, but gives her last performance alongside cellist Iona Russell and soprano Ailsa McTernan in Robert Schumann’s acclaimed song cycle.

Strike the right note on your lunch break – join Chetham’s students for free lunchtime recitals in the Carole Nash Hall, almost every weekday during term-time.

From students at the very outset of their musical careers, to Sixth Form students on the verge of higher education in leading conservatoires and universities, enjoy solo recitals, chamber performances and occasional guest artists or larger ensembles.

Repertoire is announced approximately one week in advance. We recommend checking the website or giving us a call before you travel to ensure that a concert is taking place.
