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. Sir Mark Elder became Music Director in 2000.
The Hallé performs over 70 concerts a year in The Bridgewater Hall, its Manchester home, as well as making over 40 appearances annually throughout the rest of Britain. Its reputation for artistic excellence has led to many international tours, broadcasts and televised performances: in August 2012, the Hallé and Sir Mark Elder toured to San Sebastian and appeared in the BBC Proms in London, before embarking on a tour to China in October.
