1999, the Society adopted the operating name of the
Manchester Beethoven Orchestra to make it clear to
our potential audience that the Society convenes primarily
as a Symphony Orchestra. The Orchestra rehearses a varied
and challenging programme each season. Concerts have been
given in Manchester Cathedral, the Royal Northern College
of Music, Gorton Monastery and other venues in recent
years. Programmes have included works by Beethoven (of
course!) through Brahms, Bruckner, Elgar, Sibelius,
Hindemith and Copeland to a specially commissioned work.
