This is the earliest programme we have for the Northern School of Music (formerly the Matthay School of Music). Performing in Milton Hall on Deansgate, it's an orchestral concert.
At the time the school didn't have the variety of students to make up an orchestra, consisting mainly of piano, violin and singers. So a lot of the music was adapted to suited the resources of the school.
I like how the reviewer of the concert is pleasantly surprised by their success, ha!
