Hallé Magic involves a string trio of Hallé musicians and a leader in the delivery of a themed programme of activities for young children.

The session centres around the Hallé Magic Box, a box of toys and props to stimulate various activities: songs & rhymes, simple movements and musical games. There is also the opportunity for the children to respond to the music in any way they wish – relaxing, listening or joining in. The emphasis is on providing a simple structure to the session that allows an informal, relaxed and impromptu atmosphere.
