Peter Cunningham Concerts
The Peter Cunningham Memorial concerts are given throughout the year in Mellor Church or Mellor Parish Centre by members of the Hallé and friends. The concerts were established in 1993 and are in aid of the Peter Cunningham Memorial Fund, which supports the important community and outreach work of Hallé Education.
The 2016/17 season of Peter Cunningham Concerts began on Monday 24th October with a performance from the Rossi Quartet. The next performance is ‘An Evening with Cole Porter’ which will take place on Monday 21 November in the Mellor Parish Centre. The rest of the season’s programmes will include Hallé Brass, Hallé meets Chethams: Next Generation, The Arlington Quartet and a Jazz Evening.
