‘A source of inspiration, fun, insight and focus for everyone who enjoys the piano and piano playing ... It continues to grow and develop as a “piano republic of equals”. There is no elitism on the course, though everyone is extremely serious about piano playing. There is no other summer school that manages to cater for the universal: Adult amateurs, promising children and observers are as welcome on the course as concert pianists, international young artists preparing for top competitions, and professional music teachers.’ Held Mid - Late August.

'Singing in amateur choirs continues to be extraordinarily popular across the country. There are many choirs located across the North West region alone, ranging in size from small harmony ensembles to full-scale, semi-professional choirs such as the Halle. There also exist many local music festivals in which there is sometimes a choral element. However, with the exception of the (national) bi-annual BBC 'Choir of the Year' competition, there aren't many local or regional competitions for amateur choirs.
The Manchester Amateur Choral Competition seeks to readdress this imbalance by establishing an annual competition in which choirs from across and beyond the region are invited to compete in a spirit of creativity and community.' Held Mid February.
