The Hallé are honoured to have won the publically-voted Manchester Evening News City Life Award, in the Classical category. The City Life awards celebrates 2015 city-wide highlights, with categories ranging from Food and Drink to Clubs and Exhibitions.

The Classical category saw strong competition from The Marriage of Figaro, Opera North/Lowry, David Matthews Symphony No.8, BBC Philharmonic at the Bridgewater Hall, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Royal Northern College of Music and Ravel and Rachmaninov Festival from the Bridgewater Hall.

The Manchester Evening News’ Robert Beale comments; “I gave it five stars and praised the chorus for singing that was nimble, accurate, nuanced, and glorious to hear. And Sir Mark’s vision of the work was as moving as it was thrilling, and fascinating in its attention to detail.”
