The residency consists of a series of concerts, masterclasses, coaching sessions and student performances as a springboard for a series of events in Manchester and Oxford.

Chetham’s School of Music is the largest specialist music school in the UK. Its 330 students aged 8 to 18 are bonded by a passion for music, making Chetham’s a truly unique and inspirational place to live, learn and make connections.

‘This is a terrific opportunity to share my own piano music with students and the wider public as well as exploring the wider vista of Australian Piano Repertoire.’
