Meet our newest sponsors – Emerald Waterways and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours

5th January 2017

The Hallé are delighted to announce that they have two new partners joining the Hallé Family of Sponsors – Emerald Waterways and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours.

Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours offer 5-star all-inclusive river cruises in central and eastern Europe, France, Portugal and South East Asia. With luxurious state-of-the-art ships, meticulously planned itineraries and a myriad of excursions and once in a lifetime events that are included in the price.

Emerald Waterways offer boutique-style river cruising through the heart of Europe’s picturesque waterways. Sailing on-board brand new contemporary Star-Ships you’ll experience unique innovations such as an indoor heated pool with retractable roof which magically turns in to a cinema by night, while enjoying everything you need for the perfect holiday included in one low price.

David Winterton, Brand Manager, UK at Emerald Waterways said: ‘We are very excited to be partnering with the Hallé for the first time. The Viennese Celebration showcases music from the one of guests favourite regions as they sail along the Danube river. And we are delighted to have the opportunity to invite many of our guests to the Bridgewater Hall to experience such a wonderful concert.’

Nichola Absalom, Brand Manager, UK at Scenic Luxury Cruises, said: ‘The Halle is the perfect partner for Scenic, sharing the same ideals of providing discerning customers with unique and exclusive experiences. We’re very proud to support the Halle’s festive concert and the enchanting evening of music was a wonderful way to celebrate with our customers the end of 2016 – our 30th  anniversary year.’

John Summers, Chief Executive of the Hallé said, ‘We are thrilled to be working with Emerald Waterways and Scenic Luxury Cruises, and to have them as part of the family of concert sponsors at the Hallé. There is a great synergy between the Hallé and these two organisations, and many of their cruises take customers to the heart of the most significant places for music-making in the world, where the music that we perform was written and first celebrated. The support from our corporate partners is invaluable to the Hallé, and partnerships such as these are central to our continuation and success. On behalf of the Hallé we would like to thank Emerald Waterways and Scenic Cruises for this support.’

Both of these companies have sponsored Hallé concerts over the Festive period, with Scenic Cruises sponsoring the Hallé Carol Concert on the evening of Sunday 18th December, and Emerald Waterways the Hallé’s Annual Viennese Celebration on the afternoon of the 7th January.
