                   “MUSIC  ON  THE  MOOR”  
(for the complete 2019 brochure, see 'Musical Events')

Good news if you are a fan of classical music.

“Music On The Moor” is returning for its second season of
monthly summer concerts at St Paul’s Church.

If you enjoy live classical music, “Music On The Moor” gives you a rare opportunity to hear some of the very best professional artists performing on your doorstep.
There is no charge for admission and even refreshments after the recital are free ! 

Donations will go to five charities: Heatons Red Cross, St Ann’s Hospice,
Francis House, Heatons Dementia Friendly Group and
The Children’s Society.

Last year’s concerts raised more than £1200 for these local charities.

The season commences on Saturday March 16 at 3pm with a trio of musicians on clarinet, recorder and piano plus a soprano.
The concert on Saturday April 13 at 3pm features The Manchester Chamber Ensemble playing a selection of works for small orchestra including Mozart’s famous
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
The concert on May 18th marks a special anniversary –
the 100th Birthday of Stephen Wilkinson who for many years was
Director of the BBC Northern Singers and many other choirs as well as being a noted composer.
The Kantos Choir, a talented ensemble of young professional singers most of whom trained in Manchester, return by popular demand and will
celebrate this special occasion.

“Music On The Moor” is fortunate to enjoy the patronage of the internationally acclaimed concert pianist Stephen Hough and financial support from several Music Trusts. Audiences are assured of the remarkable experience of listening to great live music in the Heatons..

The season will terminate on Sat August 17th
