The Hallé Family

Welcome to the Hallé’s family of ensembles!

We offer a range of regular, local and free ensemble experiences for young people aged 8 –19 years. We also offer adults (aged 18+) the chance to sing in one of the best symphony choruses in the UK, or one of our non-auditioned choirs for fun.

Benefits include working at the highest level with international visiting and other professional musicians, meeting other like-minded people and performing exciting repertoire together in the world-famous Bridgewater Hall.
