Welcome! Founded by two members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the orchestra leader Thelma Handy and cellist Alex Holladay, this young and exciting 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   

Our Summer Festival 2022 has now come to a close. From 26th June - 3rd July, the festival hosted a whole variety of classical music events in venues all across Wirral. Featuring The London Handel Players at Heswall Hall, through to our very own Youth String Quartet Academy Showcase at Mere Brook House, via our family concert and Wirral Youth Brass at Pacific Road, the Liverpool Wind Collective in Oxton and Brahms String Sextet in Thornton Hough, we reached hundreds of concert goers with live music at its best.
