The Hallé
Roderick Williams baritone
Jonathon Heyward conductor

Hailed by Mark Elder as ‘a bright rising star’, American conductor Jonathon Heyward takes to the Town Hall stage with one of the Music Festival’s long-standing favourites, The Hallé.

Alongside one of the most beloved of romantic symphonies, and Mahler’s ‘songs of a wayfarer’ performed by captivating baritone Roderick Williams, Ryan Wigglesworth’s new work is inspired by themes from his 2017 opera for ENO, The Winter’s Tale, and is a co-commission with The Hallé, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Bergen Philharmonic.
