The Hallé at Christmas

Johnny James, Music Editor

We are inching ever closer to that merry old time of year, and as usual the Hallé has a wonderful Christmas season lined up. The Hallé at Christmas will celebrate great Scandinavian composers (Finlandia), feature live accompaniment to classic films (The Snowman and Casino Royale), and invite world-renowned guest artists to lead joyous festivities (Hallé Extravaganza with Noah Stewart). Out of a wide range of concerts (which you can find listed in full on the Hallé’s website), we’ve selected our top picks.

Here are our picks
