As part of its 40th anniversary celebrations, the Royal Northern College of Music has been touring the city over the past few months, playing 40 concerts in 40 different venues. With host venues as diverse as the Imperial War Museum, Manchester Reform Synagogue, Gorton Monastery and the Town Hall, it was inevitable that among them, the RNCM’s neighbour the Deaf Institute would make an appearance. On Tuesday 11 June you can catch a two-hour-long concert, broken down in to three bite-sized, 30-minute sets, of music performed by the college’s students. The concert features graduate duo Trevor Bartlett and Rosy Moore performing a mixed set of jazz and folk music on clarsach, electric clarsach, cajon and vibraphone. Guitarists from the RNCM, meanwhile, will offer a varied programme of ensemble and solo works by Reginald Smith-Brindle, Benjamin Britten and Daniel Bernard Roumain. What’s more, this concert – like all in the series – is free to attend. Just turn up on the night and join the celebrations.

Tue 11 Jun, The Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, M1 7HE, Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7pm, FREE,
