Now in its 159th season, the Hallé ranks among the UK’s top symphonic ensembles. With a reputation for artistic excellence, the Hallé remains determined to seek ways to enhance and refresh what it undertakes. Sir Mark Elder became Music Director in 2000. Founded in Manchester by Sir Charles Hallé, the Hallé gave its first concert in the Free Trade Hall on 30 January 1858. The Hallé’s distinguished history of acclaimed performances includes over 70 concerts each year in The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, around 40 concerts a year around Britain, international tours, frequent broadcasts and televised performances.
Ryan Wigglesworth has established himself as one of the foremost composer-conductors of his generation. He has been Principal Guest Conductor of the Hallé Orchestra since September 2015 and is currently Composer in Residence at ENO.
Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano,” Andrew Tyson is emerging as a distinctive and important new musical voice. He performs regularly across the US, in Boston, Chicago, Miami and New York, and in Europe.
