Event Description

The Chetham’s International Summer School and Festival for Pianists is a source of inspiration, fun, insight and focus for everyone who enjoys the piano and piano-playing.

Now in its nineeenth year, it continues to grow and develop as a ‘piano republic of equals’. There is no elitism on the course, though everyone is extremely serious about piano playing.

There is no other Summer school that manages to cater for the universal: Adult amateurs, promising children, and observers are as welcome on the course as concert pianists, international young artists preparing for top competitions, and professional music teachers.

About the organiser

Chetham's is the largest specialist music school in the UK and the only one in the North of England. Originally established as a charity school in 1653, it became a co-educational, specialist music school in 1969 and over the last 50 years has established itself as a central part of music education in the UK.

Chetham’s students learn and play in a state-of-the-art New School building, opened in 2012 to provide acoustically designed practice rooms, performance spaces and rehearsal rooms. A full programme of performances takes place in school and across the region, with senior ensembles travelling regularly to London and overseas.

A new, professional concert hall, The Stoller Hall, will further enhance the School’s place in Manchester’s cultural community, bringing international artists to perform at Chetham’s and providing a performance space to match the superb standards of playing by our School’s young musicians.
