YOUR CLASSICAL MUSIC EVENT
Name of event: Northern Chamber Orchestra (NCO) Macclesfield 2016: Martin James Bartlett. Where / when is it?: Macclesfield Heritage Centre, Roe Street, Macclesfield, SK11 6UT. Saturday, March 5, 7.30pm. What does it involve?: Mozart’s true character is perhaps revealed in his flamboyant, melodically witty piano concerto, performed by Martin James Bartlett, winner – BBC Young Musician of 2014. In contrast, Tchaikovsky offers up a wistful, ravishingly poignant piece. To close, the NCO performs a hardly known symphony by Haydn – full of invention, surprises and delights.

The café serves quality, home-cooked food using locally-sourced ingredients and pre-booked two or three-course meals are great value; if you don’t have time for your dessert before the concert, they will bring it up to you at the interval!
