It’s been closed to the public for over a year but The Stoller Hall is preparing to welcome audiences back through their doors for some glorious live music. Located at Chetham’s School of Music, the state-of-the-art concert hall puts audiences closer to the music, creating uniquely personal live music experiences that you won’t forget. When audiences return from Monday 7 June they’ll be treated to a selection of live jazz, an international piano series and a line-up of chamber music throughout the autumn.
Their first live jazz event – due to take place on Monday 7 June – is with Soweto Kinch and will have social distancing measures in place. A renowned saxophonist and hip-hop artist, Soweto is a multiple MOBO-Award winner. His concert launches a Summer of Jazz hosted in partnership with NQ Jazz and The Yard, which is set to include a plethora of lunchtime and evening shows – alongside a selection of live-streamed performances.
Amongst the artists appearing will be pianist Nikki Iles with vocalist Norma Winstone and saxophonist Stan Sulzmann, and a performance from Jazz FM’s 2016 Instrumentalist of the Year, Mark Lockheart. Friday 13 August sees the return of Stoller’s International Piano Series – two weeks of recitals and live-streams from such classical luminaries as Leon McCawley, Noriko Ogawa and Joanna MacGregor – all of which are not to be missed.
Meanwhile, from October, the Hall plans to re-open at full capacity for a packed autumn season, featuring some of the world’s best chamber ensembles including mixed instrument ensemble I Musicanti and renowned pianist Martin Roscoe, piano trio Sitkovetsky Trio and more.
