Can you believe we’re already talking about Spring 2023?  Warm weather …. longer daylight hours …. fresh plans ….. and a whole season of lovely new performances we’ve lined up for you! 

The most exciting thing for me in our Spring 2023 season is the knitting together of our ethos of learning and participation with our series of performances and events.  We are working closely with artists throughout the season to create truly enriching opportunities for audiences, and to help early career musicians launch themselves into successful and enduring careers, all the while mindful of our younger audiences and making sure they have opportunities to engage. 

Our family programme continues with Izzy Gizmo – based on the book by Pip Jones, illustrated by Sara Ogilvie – we will bring the story of this intrepid young adventurer to life with original music and a performance full of wit, invention, songs, and of course lots of opportunity to join in!  Our musical journeys for pre-schoolers also continue with our Stoller Story Sounds workshops – the Snowbear’s Story and Dandylion and the Sad Stem – these will be sure to have the whole family up on their feet and singing along. 

Our classical season features more of the world’s most amazing chamber musicians.  Brought to you in partnership with the Manchester Chamber Concerts Society, as well as the continuation of the epic Mozart Made in Manchester project with Manchester Camerata, and even incredible classical music stars and household names, like Riopy and the Ayoub Sisters. 

We are bringing great names from comedy and TV too – Babatunde Aléshé of I’m A Celebrity fame, and TV vocalist Tommy Blaize who you will surely have all heard on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing over the last few years.   

Jazz and folk a plenty too of course ….. Dave Bristow, Philip Lassiter, Chris Wood …. to name but a few. 

Maybe even more incredibly, we also have events on sale right through to next Autumn.  Have you ever seen the Young ‘Uns?  If not, I really do promise they are not to be missed.  And our Guitar and Medieval Festival plans are coming along a-pace – more on those soon! 

Without our audiences, our venue has no soul, and we feel privileged to have incredibly loyal audiences and advocates for our venue.  We love hearing your feedback – it is essential to our journey and to making sure the Stoller Hall is right for you.  Please keep it coming!   

We hope to see you soon…
