Haçienda Classical, sees the clubs original DJ partnership Graeme Park and Mike Pickering reinterpret seminal dance classics with Manchester Camerata – “Probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra” (The Times) – conductor Tim Crooks and guests performing a full, continuous set.
Haçienda Classical has returned in 2017 with a new set, aired for the first time at concerts in Leeds and Glasgow. The Yorkshire Evening Post commented on the Leeds show calling it ” two hours of sheer enjoyment for the head, heart and feet, this is a show that’s hard to beat,” while Contact Music hailed it as “a total success”.
Meanwhile the second fully sold out Glasgow show was awarded the full five stars by The Wee Review (“the atmosphere was joyous”) whilst the Daily Record labelled the revised concert and set up “impressive but tunes remain at the heart of it all.”
Upcoming shows for Haçienda Classical over Summer 2017 include Glastonbury Festival, Harbourside Ampitheatre Bristol, Manchester’s Castlefield Arena, Kew The Music, Lytham Festival, Newcastle’s Live From Times Square, Liverpool’s Hope & Glory Festival, The Big Feastival, Brighton Racecourse with a homecoming end of year concert just announced for Manchester’s Apollo Theatre.
