Now Hear This is a fun-packed, fast-paced introduction to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra for schoolchildren aged 8 to 11, with the chance to join the world famous Hallé Orchestra in making a sensational sound.
Your guides to the music are conductor Jonathon Heyward and presenter Tom Redmond. This year’s concert features a colourful cast of heroes and villains, vividly captured in some of the most thrilling music you’ll ever hear, from Rossini’s galloping hero, William Tell, to the whip-cracking adventures of Indiana Jones.
The Hallé’s Education Director, Steve Pickett, has arranged Chuck Rio’s irresistibly jazzy Tequila for schools to perform with the Hallé, and also one of Johan Strauss’s famous polkas. Apart from supporting progression routes for young musicians these Come and Play pieces offer an amazing and inspiring experience that they will never forget. Steve has arranged two songs – Lin Marsh’s Believe and a new song, Superhero Blues – for everyone to sing with the Hallé in the concert. Now Hear This also offers fantastic opportunities to make music come alive before and after the concert.
