Wednesday at One Recitals

Wednesday at One is a popular weekly lunchtime recital series, from 1.10 pm till 2 pm each Wednesday in the Catholic Pro-Cathedral, 373 Manchester Street, Christchurch.

A light lunch is available before each concert. A wide range of performers is featured, in a superb acoustic, often using the Steinway concert grand piano, or the 4 manual Rodgers Infinity Platinum hybrid pipe /digital organ.

Groups range in size from small chamber ensembles to full symphonic orchestras, with a particular focus on encouraging young performers, and inviting citizens to be welcomed into the central city Catholic church.
