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!
