CONCERTS UNDER THE SPIRE - Matinee Concerts at 2.00p.m.

Dear Music Lovers,

We had so missed our wonderful musicians and audiences, and we were delighted that we were able to resume our Wednesday concerts at the Methodist Church. 

We have been particularly pleased that we have been able to engage some artists whose 2020 bookings had to be cancelled!

The 18-month break since our last Lunchtime Concert in February 2020, gave us an opportunity to re-think our events, and to make a fresh start – with a new name and a new image!

For the next quarter, we will be offering Matinee Concerts at 2.00 pm after which we will serve tea and cake.

First up was a concert on Wednesday 15th September. Originally we had hoped to have with us Beth Willett / viola and Hector Leung / piano, who were appearing by kind permission of the rncm. Unfortunately, we learnt that Beth was unable to come to Alderley Edge, but the College, instead, arranged for Yiyi Su, a Chinese Pianist to perform a Recital. We were delighted to welcome her to Alderley Edge as our first artist in the new series of Concerts Under the Spire; Yiyi Su presented a superb programme, which was much enjoyed by the audience.


20th October:    Kell Wind Trio


Alastair Roberts (Flute), Geoffrey Smith (Clarinet), Ian Harvey (Bassoon)


Entrance is by Programme, £10, which includes light refreshments at the end of the Concert.

17th November: Meraki Duo

Meera Mahara (Flute) and James Girling (Guitar)

Looking ahead to next year, we are planning a series of Coffee Concerts for the first three months of 2022, starting at 11.00 am preceded by coffee and refreshments from 10.15 am. 

We look forward to seeing you on the 15th .  Do please spread the word, and we also welcome your feedback about the new arrangements.
