Thursday Lunchtimes: Steve Reich Double Sextet with Psappha
Thursday 9 February 2023, 1.15pm
RNCM Concert Hall
Our students, staff, and visiting artists perform alongside one another in our weekly Thursday lunchtime concert series. Drop in during your lunch break and enjoy the best of ensemble music in the heart of Manchester.
Psappha is the North West’s only stand-alone professional contemporary classical music ensemble dedicated to commissioning, performing and promoting new music – particularly by living composers and emerging musicians. A gripping display of interlocking rhythms and instruments in Steve Reich’s Double Sextet forms the perfect setting for our students and Psappha to unite in this side-by-side lunchtime concert.
