Welcome to the 2016/17 series

After a decade of curating the MMCS series at the Bridgewater Hall, this season will be my final one as Director of Concerts.  It has given me the greatest satisfaction to be able to showcase so many fine young artists and to see how their careers have blossomed.  I have invited some of them to make a return visit this season and I am sure that you will relish the opportunity of hearing once again...
