Hallé Orchestra

Orchestra

Founded in Manchester by Sir Charles Hallé in 1858, the Hallé gave its first concert in the city’s Free Trade Hall on 30 January of that year. Following the death of Sir Charles Hallé, the orchestra continued to develop under the guidance of such distinguished figures as Dr Hans Richter, Sir Hamilton Harty and Sir John Barbirolli. Mark Elder became Music Director in 2000 and was knighted by the Queen for services to music in 2008. In November 2011, he was awarded Honorary Membership of the Royal Philharmonic Society.
