Chetham’s School of Music, the leading specialist music school, will present a week of performance by the School’s young ensembles from 3-14 February 2019.
The extended Spring Music week begins with Concerto Finals on Sunday 3 February, when Director of Music Stephen Threlfall assembles a panel of experts to select next season’s concerto soloists.
On Sunday 10 February, singers transform the medieval Baronial Hall into a theatre for The Drama of the Oratorio, semi-staged scenes based around extracts from Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
If you’ve always wondered what it takes to bring a concert together, join CSO onstage on Monday 11 February. They invite you Inside the Orchestra, to explore the context and background to Elgar’s music and to share in the rehearsal process.
Chetham’s Sinfonia and Ensembles take to the stage on Tuesday 12 February, performing music by Eric Coates and Malcolm Arnold as they display the talent of the school’s younger ensembles. The week concludes on Thursday 14 February, when Chetham’s Symphony Orchestra, the school’s flagship ensemble, performs Elgar’s Enigma Variations, alongside Four Sea Interludes and Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. The orchestra takes the same programme to London’s Royal Academy of Music on Friday 15 February.
