Special features of this year’s Hallé for Youth concerts include:

  • An opportunity to explore orchestral music related to the British Isles
  • An introduction to instruments of the orchestra as demonstrated by the Hallé
  • An opportunity to hear Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra with a brand new and updated script by presenter, Tom Redmond
  • An opportunity to join in with From a Railway Carriage, written especially for these concerts by Steve Pickett, the Hallé’s Education Director
  • A copy of the song may be downloaded from the Hallé’s website once you have booked and paid for your tickets

Hallé for Youth will also feature one of four local schools involved in this year’s creative music project run in association with the Museum of Science and Industry and the Northern Ballet School. Please note: these concerts will be filmed and screened live so that everyone attending can see clearly what is presented on stage. This footage may include occasional shots of the audience. This year the Hallé is involved in a brand new partnership with the students and tutors of the Foundation Degree Media Production course from the Media and Performing Arts Department of The Sheffield College. The Hallé and The Sheffield College reserve the right to use some of the material for promotional purposes and ask all schools to seek the relevant consent and permissions.

* Artists and programmes correct at time of going to print but we reserve the right to change them if necessary.
