For their first Manchester concert of 2020, the Northern Chamber Orchestra welcome acclaimed percussionist Colin Currie for a performance at the lush setting of RIBA-award winning venue, The Stoller Hall. Currie, called “The world’s finest and most daring percussionist” by The Spectator, will join the orchestra to play a lively work by Kurt Schwertsik, as well as partnering with the orchestra’s principal clarinet, Elizabeth Jordan, on Stephen Barlow’s Nocturne piece. The Northern Chamber Orchestra is one of the country’s top chamber orchestras; founded in the 1960s, it regularly tours the North of England and is currently the Orchestra in Association at the Stoller Hall. With the programme for this concert also including Grieg’s Praeludium from the Holberg Suite, Delius’s Two Aquarelles, and Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings, this is a special night for classical music fans. Tickets (including student discounts and free entry for under 18s) are available now from the Stoller Hall’s website.
