Friday lunchtime recitals by students from Manchester's internationally renowned Royal Northern College of Music.


The RNCM Songsters are a specially selected group of students at the RNCM; singers and pianists who are passionate and excel in the performance of art song.

They perform in bespoke and innovative recital programmes of song at events within the college, and externally at various other musical organisations and venues. They have performed for many music societies across the United Kingdom, as well as a number of leading festivals of song, including Leeds Lieder and Manchester Song Festival. 

In 2019 they collaborated with pianist David Owen Norris on a recording project of the art songs of Arthur Sullivan. As part of their training, they get to work with visiting tutors specialising in art song repertoire, including Julius Drake, Roderick WIlliams, Richard Stokes, Alice Coote, and David Owen Norris. The Artistic Director of RNCM Songsters is Jonathan Fisher.
