Corporate Choir Competition

Now entering its 7th year, the Hallé Corporate Choir Competition brings the Hallé’s rich choral heritage into the workplace. By tapping into our team of experienced and inspirational vocal leaders, the Hallé’s Corporate Choir Competition offers a unique approach to wellbeing and teambuilding by bringing together employees at all levels through an activity that builds trust, improves communication skills, and boosts staff morale.

Established in 2013 with support from the North West Business Leadership Team’s prestigious Lever Prize, the Competition invites businesses and organisations from across the North to compete for the chance to perform on stage with the Hallé at The Bridgewater Hall. Each choir entrant is paired with a professional Choral Conductor, with whom they rehearse a repertoire of two songs over the course of five sessions leading up to the Competition. Whilst the winning choir is honoured by performing exclusively during one of the Hallé’s Christmas concerts, all corporate choir singers are invited to join the Hallé’s Massed Choir that same evening—a wonderful opportunity to perform alongside one of the world’s greatest orchestras to an audience of 1,800.
