Halle Harmony Youth Orchestra performs its final show on Sunday April 25

Talented Manchester Creative and Media Academy (Boys) student and musician Callum Watson is preparing for a big performance with the Hallé Harmony Youth Orchestra. And he needs our backing.

The year 11 student is principal bassoonist for the orchestra, which is performing its final concert of its season at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester city centre on Sunday April 25.

Callum, who has been playing bassoon for four years, has already played in esteemed city centre cultural locations including the Martin Harris Centre and The Royal Northern College of Music with the Hallé Harmony.

Callum’s nan and mum have already been to watch him play, and now he has a big fan club. 

He said: “Everyone [I know] is coming for the last performance. All the teachers are getting involved and loads of my friends are all coming.”

“There is a competition in the orchestra to see who can bring the most people. If I was to enter I think I might come first or second.”

Under 18’s will be able to cheer on Callum for just £2.50 – ensuring he will get maximum support.

The Halle Harmony Orchestra brings together around 70 young performers from Greater Manchester including Stockport, Oldham, Bolton and Manchester.  

The concert, which will be filmed for a four-part Channel 4 documentary following the experiences of individual orchestra members, will include works including Mars from The Planets by Holst and Festive Overture by Shostakovich.

Tickets: £8.50 adults, £5.50 concessions, £2.50 for under 18s. Ring (0161) 907 9000 to book.
