Welcome to the 2015/16 series

A very warm welcome to the 2015 - 2016 series of Manchester Mid-day Concerts at The Bridgewater Hall.  How to follow last season's centenary celebrations, which record numbers of you attended and enjoyed, was always going to present a challenge, so I've taken the idea of 'new beginnings' as an over-arching theme, by inviting the young artists who have auditioned successfully or who are making a welcome return visit to include something unusual or novel in their programmes, music that will complement our enjoyment of some established classical and romantic favourites.
