BBC Radio 3 is to air a series of concerts recorded across Manchester next year.

Manchester Week will feature 10 live and pre-recorded events at Bridgewater Hall, The Stoller Hall at Chetham’s School of Music and MediaCityUK.

“As restrictions on live performances accompany us into the new year, we at BBC Radio 3 continue to connect our audiences with the very best music-making from around the UK, enabling artists to perform and earn a living whilst bringing great live performance to a national and indeed global audience,” explained Alan Davey, Controller, BBC Radio 3.

“Here we take a moment to celebrate inspiring talent and world-class venues and put the spotlight on one of the UK’s most creative and culturally vibrant cities, Manchester.”

Concerts will be performed by established and up-and-coming musicians, including pianist Stephen Hough, Hallé Orchestra, Manchester Camerata and Manchester Collective.

Manchester Week starts on Saturday January 16th with Psappha in session from The Stoller Hall.
