The Bee Gees: A Celebration of 65 Years | Sat 13 May | 7.30pm | £17.50-£46.50

Taking place sixty-five years to the day since their formation, the Hallé’s celebration of the Bee Gees and their incomparable legacy promises a musical odyssey across their history, with conductor Richard Balcome and a set of star soloists performing a collection of world-famous hits including Run to Me, More Than a Woman, Stayin’ Alive and many, many more.

Note: £5.50 student tickets are not available for this event.

Benedetti | Kanneh-Mason | Grosvenor | Fri 19 May | 7.30pm | £15.50-£46

Billed as ‘one of the season’s highlights’, Nicola Benedetti returns for a second Hallé performance alongside Sheku Kanneh-Mason – making his highly anticipated debut – and Benjamin Grosvenor in a ‘dream team’ rendition of Beethoven’s ‘Triple’ Concerto. Dalia Stasevska, Principal Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, also makes her debut, framing the concert with Sibelius’ Karelia suite and Seventh Symphony, as well as Andrea Tarrodi’s Paradisfåglar, praised by BBC Music Magazine for its ‘powerful emotional core’.

The Dream of Gerontius | Sun 4 Jun | 6pm | £15.50-£46

Built upon a symbiotic foundation of Wagnerian leitmotifs and ‘superb, varied choral writing’, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius adapts Cardinal Newman’s poem on the death of ‘a man like us…a sinner’ in a transcendent musical account of Angels, Demons and the Almighty led by acclaimed conductor Sir Mark Elder.
