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 concerts take pupils from Year 9 through to sixth form on a guided tour of music from the Baroque era through to film scores from Hollywood blockbusters, and feature a number of orchestral pieces from the AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel syllabi.

Pupils will be given a brief history and live musical analysis of these pieces as well as tracing the evolution of the symphony orchestra, all accompanied by the world-class Hallé. The concert also features soloists from the Royal Northern College of Music and the whole event is captured on live camera feeds which allow the audience to have a close-up view of the orchestra throughout the performance.

‘The Orchestra Through The Ages’ concert is a collaboration with The Bridgewater Hall and the Royal Northern College of Music. The technical expertise is provided by students from UTC@MediaCityUK.
