Welcome! Founded by two members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the orchestra leader Thelma Handy and cellist Alex Holladay, this brand new festival has one aim: to promote a love of classical music by making world-class chamber music exciting, accessible and inclusive for the Wirral community. The benefits of live classical music are proven and much needed after lockdown. Not only does it offer greater shared social connections and heightened emotional experiences, but also improves sleep, memory and productivity, and can even reduce stress and ease pain. So join us and rediscover the powers of live music!

What's On   

Summer festival 2021

Our first full weekend of COVID-SECURE socially distanced events ran from 16-18 July 2021. A huge than you to everyone who supported it. We couldn't have asked for more: terrific live music, capacity audiences and wonderful Wirral venues. Don't worry if you missed it - we will be bringing more live chamber music to more of the Wirral. Subscribe here to be the first to hear about our next event!
