Chetham’s is at a defining moment in its history. Soon it will be known to thousands more people as a centre of excellence for music, education and heritage. Work is underway to ensure our facilities reach the high standards befitting the world’s leading music school, enabling us to share our unique history, stunning architecture and vibrant music from the young musicians of tomorrow.
Our new, purpose-built Music School building is exceptional, but this was only the first step in a series of transformational developments here at Chetham’s. The next phases include the construction of a new Concert Hall and works to reveal the site’s original medieval buildings to become a dramatic visual addition to the cityscape of central Manchester.
Chetham’s offers fantastic opportunities for anyone who would like to support a unique organisation in its evolution from a Music School and historic Library into a professional Performing Arts Venue and major Heritage Visitor Attraction, whilst remaining a world-class centre of music education.
