Association of British Orchestras

As Arts Council England finalises its 10 Year Strategy for 2020-2030, and the other nations review their cultural strategies, our conference in Manchester will be an opportunity to look ahead to what the landscape for orchestras will be in 2030. From inclusion to programming, workforce to funding, broadcasting to the environment, what do orchestras need to do to guarantee a sustainable and vibrant future?

Keynote speakers will include Darren Henley OBE, Chief Executive Arts Council England; Stephen Bush, Political Editor, New Statesman and violinist and founder of The Benedetti Foundation Nicola Benedetti CBE.

Jointly hosted by BBC Philharmonic and Hallé orchestras, delegates will be hosted in BBC Quay House in Media City, Salford; at Chetham’s School of Music, Hallé St Peters and St Michaels, and will attend concerts given by the Able Orchestra in the BBC Philharmonic Studio, and the Hallé orchestra at Bridgewater Hall.
