The venue for the occasion is the award-winning Stoller Hall, a stunning, contemporary space that really adds to the atmosphere. Performances will include two of Mozart’s Divertimentos, the NCO’s composer in residence James Manson’s arrangement of Handel’s Violin Sonata and Shostakovich’s Concerto No. 1 for piano, trumpet and string orchestra, as well as other classics for audiences to enjoy.

The orchestra was established back in 1967 and has since presented many successful seasons of concerts across the North West, attracting serious talent throughout the years.
