Hallé Family of Choirs


Over 600 singers sing weekly with the Hallé across our range of friendly and welcoming choirs – why not join us?

The Hallé Youth and Children’s Choirs are open to all, by audition, and are free to join. Applications open every spring, with auditions usually held in July.

Hallé Children’s Choir – is for children aged 8-12 years (in school years 4-8) who love singing and are prepared for the challenge of developing their ability whilst having fun!

Hallé Youth Training Choir – is for promising young singers aged 13-15 years (in school years 9-11) who want to learn more about music and singing.

Hallé Youth Choir – is for talented young singers aged 13-18 years (in school years 9-13 and gap year) who feel confident at reading music and love the excitement of contributing to a choir.

The Hallé Choir is a large symphony chorus that is open to all adult singers by audition. As the choir performs several concerts each season, and usually with the Hallé, all singers need to have some prior experience of choral singing and be able to follow a score. Auditions are held regularly throughout the season.

The Hallé Choral Academy is an opportunity for adult singers to sing well together, while also focussing on learning or improving how to read a score. Singers sign up for a season during the summer months, to complete the programme. Applications are welcomed from all interested singers, regardless of experience.

The Hallé Ancoats Community Choir is a large group of friendly singers who welcome new adult singers throughout the year. Everyone is welcome, and there is no need to read music – just come along and join in the fun.

The Hallé also runs an extensive workplace choir programme in businesses across the North West, culminating in our annual Corporate Choir Competition.
