Henry Cash was the second prizewinner at the 2021 Mottram International Piano Competition held in Manchester.
We are delighted to welcome Henry to Norden Farm. His wide-ranging programme ends with Brahms’ titanic and revelatory F minor Sonata, an inspiring listen. Come and hear a future star!

Meng Yang Pan has made several concerto appearances with St John’s Chamber Orchestra.
She makes a welcome return in a solo recital with a stunning virtuoso programme, taking in famous transcriptions, a kaleidoscopic showpiece by Schumann, and Gershwin’s evergreen Rhapsody in Blue. And as with all the recitals in this series, there’s a nod in the direction of Rachmaninov, in the 150th anniversary year of his birth.
