2019: Fly Me to the Moon

This year’s concert celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo landing  so get ready for alien dances,  galactic grooves and a host of celestial classics in an hour of space age music to light up the Royal Concert Hall. 

The Hallé’s Education Director, Steve Pickett, has arranged Tito Puente's mambo hit Ran Kan Kan for schools to perform with the Hallé, as well as Johann Strauss's soaring Blue Danube waltz (featured in 201: A Space Odessey . Apart from supporting progression routes for young musicians these Come and Play pieces offer an amazing and inspiring experience that they will never forget.

Steve has arranged two songs – Marr Green and Helen Stanley's One Step to the Moon and a new song, Galactic Groove - for everyone to sing with the Hallé in the concert.
