Sing out loud: the Manchester Song Festival at Stoller Hall in 2024

Manchester Song Festival will feature workshops for singers of all abilities

The Manchester Song Festival at Stoller Hall in March 2024 is about much more than just song recitals. There are concerts from major artists including jazz-singer Cleveland Watkiss, tenor Mark Padmore, and Korean opera singer Hera Hyesang Park, but there will also be a day of participatory vocal workshops across many genres from classical to pop, musical to opera - aimed at singers of all abilities, as well as interactive sessions for families. There will also be sessions on performance anxiety, how to look after your vocal health and more, plus for aspiring and early-career musicians, there will also be chances to talk 1-to-1 with the experts.

The festival opens on 1 March 2024 with Cleveland Watkiss and VocalSuite, for concert blending voice and technology for a unique display of a cappella vocal talent with influences ranging from classical to African rhythm, to jazz and choral music. Mark Padmore's recital on 2 March moves from Schumann to Frank Bridge, Michael Tippett and Rebecca Clarke, as well as celebrating the music of contemporary composer Tansy Davies. Finally on 3 March, Hera Hyesang Park will mix Korean art songs with operatic classics.
