Set Works Concert


Featuring set works for GCSE and A-level Music

The Hallé’s dedicated set works concert, ‘The Orchestra Through The Ages’, has been created in collaboration with teachers and music educators across the country to provide a unique resource for pupils studying GCSE and A-level music.

The concert aims to engage as many students as possible, not just those studying music for public exams. Schools may wish to give pupils from a variety of year groups the opportunity to watch and engage, as well as those who play in various school ensembles.
