Did you know that symphony orchestras have existed for over 400 years, have 100 members and can sound as loud as a jet engine or as quiet as a mouse?

Our brilliant presenter Ruth Rosales will take you on a tour of the orchestra, exploring all the different instruments, from the titanic tuba to the petite piccolo as the Hallé performs some of the most hair-raising and captivating orchestral music from Mozart to John Williams. Ruth will also introduce Euan Shields, the Hallé’s Assistant Conductor, explaining the role of conductor and what all that arm waving really means! We hope you will join us for an engaging and interactive tour of the orchestra, with lots of great music and plenty of fun!
