Meet-a-Musician is one of our most popular offerings as it introduces the work of the Orchestra in a very accessible and approachable way within your school. The session can be delivered to any age-group from Early Years to Year 8, and can also be adapted for SEND settings.

The project is designed for a class of 30 pupils and involves a visit from a Hallé player, who will demonstrate their instrument and tell the pupils about life as a professional musician. The class will have the opportunity to ask questions, hear the musician perform and take part in a range of musical games and activities. To accompany the project, groups in Years 5-8 are also offered the opportunity to visit The Bridgewater Hall where they will hear the Hallé perform in a weekday matinee concert. For many children will be their first experience of attending an orchestral concert in one of the UK’s finest music venues.
