Concerts for the People – music education in Manchester’s Histories, Thursday 27th March 6.30pm

Public engagement and education in music in Manchester's history

Public engagement and education in music in Manchester’s history

This event is the culmination of the AHRC Cultural Engagement project, led by the Institute for Cultural Practices and involving Sian Derry, James Hume and Tom Scriven, three early career researchers from Music and History. The researchers will be giving papers on what they discovered about the history of music education in the city from the perspectives of the great Manchester institutions and societies, exploring networks, repertoires and approaches from the 19th and 20th century.

We will also be hearing these histories through musical performances of relevant repertoire from Simon Passmore & Tom Verity, and from the Sing City Choir, who will be performing songs from the Broadside ballads project, commissioned by Brighter Sound and led by folk singer Jennifer Reid.

The programme on Thursday 27th March starts at 6.30pm and takes place in the historic Halle St.Peters in Ancoats, 40 Blossom Street, M4 6BF

Refreshments available.
