Manchester is a great place to see a wide variety of live music. Take a look at the well-known musicians and orchestras playing at the Bridgewater Hall, and the huge number of concerts at the RNCM, including many free performances.

Don't forget about the music departments at the universities of Manchester and Salford, too.

Further afield there's the RLPO in Liverpool and the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
