Name: Hallé St Bee-ter’s A Chorus of Industry
Location: Cutting Room Square, Ancoats
Designed and decorated by: Daniel Gubba.
Sponsor: The Hallé supported by Siemens plc
Hallé St Bee-ter’s reflects the Hallé’s relationship with Manchester’s industrial heritage, and its base in Ancoats at Hallé St Peter’s. It celebrates the wonderful partnership between the Hallé and its principal sponsor Siemens – a perfect blend of music and industry. The artist’s family history in Ancoats, the street names, music shops of old and the brass of the instruments have all influenced this design.
Now in its 160th season, the Hallé has a reputation for artistic excellence, ranking it amongst the world’s top symphonic ensembles. The Hallé’s community projects include the incredible Ancoats Community Choir, offering local people the chance to learn a new skill whilst having fun.
Daniel Gubba grew up in Manchester and works in television as a freelance set and props maker, currently in animation in South Manchester. He also creates his own artwork, most recently based on robotic animals and characters.
