Young Musicians from Chetham's to perform in Saltaire
Friday 3 March, 7pm. 
Free Unticketed Event.

Young musicians from Chetham’s perform a range of concerti for mixed combinations of soloists, in the setting of Saltaire’s Victorian architectural gem. No Reserved Seating, first come first served. 
Saltaire United Reformed Church, Victoria Road, Saltaire, West Yorkshire BD18 3LF

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) was one of the most influential musical figures of the late baroque. Chetham’s School of Music, in association with the Early Music Shop, present the Telemann 250 project directed by Dr Martyn Shaw.  The project celebrates the music of Telemann in his sestercentennial year. Concerts of Telemann's works, including concerti, fantasias and trio sonatas present a fitting dedication to an extraordinary musical master. 

Event sponsored by The Early Music Shop.
