The theme of Mozart on Tour threads its way through the Northern Chamber Orchestra's 2024/25 season of concerts in Macclesfield (largely but not exclusively at The King's School). But it isn't just Mozart, with a season featuring works by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, John Adams, George Walker, Schnittke, and Judith Weir

The season opens with Mozart in Paris with Ellie Slorach conducting Symphony No.13 (Paris) and the Requiem with Manchester Chamber choir. Then in December focus moves to Linz for Mozart's Symphony No. 36 (Linz) directed by Katie Stillman in a concert that also includes Raphael Wallfisch in Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations and music by Anna Thorvaldsdottir. In Vienna, we get Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 with Benedict Holland directing with soloist Jeneba-Kanneh Mason plus Symphony No. 35 (Haffner) plus music by John Adams and George Walker. And the season ends in Prague with Zoe Beyers directing Mozart's Symphony No. 38 (Prague) plus Haydn's Symphony No.45 (‘Farewell’), Schnittke's Moz-Art a la Haydn and Judith Weir's Still, Glowing.

Other concerts feature Philip Herbert's Elegy (In Memoriam Stephen Lawrence), Jennifer Pike in Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, Caplet's Suite Persane, Shostakovich, Neilsen, Bruckner, Jessie Montgomery and much else besides.
