The Northern Chamber Orchestra's 50th anniversary season continues on 12 January 2018 when the orchestra is joined by Gwilym Simcock for a concert at The Stoller Hall, Manchester, the new concert hall at Chetham's School of Music. 

Simcock's music spans the classical and jazz fields, and for the concert Simcock and the orchestra will be playing his Cumbrian Thaw for piano and strings, alongside his arrangement of Debussy's Children's Corner. The programme is completed by Tippett's Sellinger’s Round and Haydn's Symphony No 85 ‘La Reine’.

Simcock is an alumnus of  Chetham's School of Music, and young musicians from the school will be rehearsing with him and the orchestra and joining the performance of Children's Corner.
