Work Experience with the Hallé

The Hallé Concerts Society welcomes interest and applications from all sections of the community for its Work Experience Scheme. The Scheme is limited to secondary school pupils aged 15-18.

Please note, work experience places are very limited. Please book well in advance, up to 1 year, to avoid disappointment.

Whilst at the Hallé, work experience will be gained in a number of departments including Education, Concerts and Marketing and, subject to the orchestra’s schedule and location, it may be possible to attend part or all of one of the rehearsals. Work experience placements last for one week.

It is desirable that the person attending the placement has an interest in music, especially classical, although this is not essential.
