John Barbirolli (1899-1970, conductor of the Hallé Orchestra) conducted many memorable performances with the Hallé including a number in 1968 which featured the Northern School of Music's choir! He even sent a note of congratulations to the school on its golden jubilee in 1970.
Many thanks to Keith for donating these items for digitisation. Do you have material and memories of the Northern School of Music? We'd love to see them.
