Festival50 is part of Chetham’s School of Music’s celebration of fifty years of creative education, accessibility and diversity. In 1969, students – including the first female and international students in a 300 year school history – joined Chetham’s by audition. That small musical revolution formed a new co-educational specialist music school with far-reaching results. In 2019, we celebrate that moment of positive change with our wider community in Festival50.
