Artefact

1963 programme of events for the Northern School of Music's summer course. This is one of the many summer courses featuring the famous Leonard Hirsch (1902-1995, violinist, teacher). He pioneered the idea of arranging concerts in air-raid shelters in WW2, he studied under the famous violinist Adolph Brodsky at the Royal Manchester College of Music and at 19 he joined the Hallé Orchestra, later becoming its leader and soloist. Pretty impressive guy!
In 1963 he was directing the summer's chamber music and orchestral course for the NSM.
