Manchester Wind Orchestra, conducted by Ralph Corrigan, take you on a tour of classic and modern British music. The concert will conclude with a number of favourites from the Last Night of the Proms.
Manchester Wind Orchestra (MWO) launched in 2013 as a new ensemble looking to play good quality wind orchestra repertoire to a high standard. The orchestra was established by a core of players who originally performed together at Manchester University and were looking for the opportunity to continue playing at an advanced level after graduating.
