Our Story

Altèri has a repertoire encompassing a thousand years of music…

 

Altèri was formed in 1995 by members of the Halle Choir who also wanted to perform repertoire more usually associated with chamber choirs. Based in South Manchester, it as performed all over the North West, including concerts at the Royal Northern College of Music, cathedrals in Liverpool, Manchester, St Asaph and Bangor, churches in Chester, Southport, Lymm, Bowden, Hale, Dunham Massey and Mellor, and both Bramhall and Tatto Halls. 

Altèri presents at least three major programmes each season, as well as taking part in charity events. Altèri has a repertoire encompassing a thousand years of music from Plainsong and organum through Machaut and Dufay to the glories of Tudor church music and beyond. 

Altèri is committed to commissioning, performing and promoting new choral music: over the past few seasons it has given first performances of works by David Ellis, John Hawkins, Peter Hope, Alan Lees and Jeffrey Lewis.
