Music will burst from The Bridgewater Hall from early till late for 48 fantastic hours on 24 and 25 June. The orchestras and ensembles of Manchester and The Bridgewater Hall are thrilled to announce the launch of a unique collaboration. Manchester Classical will see the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata, Manchester Collective and a host of stellar artists come together for a breath-taking weekend of music, film, food, crafts and free foyer entertainment, all in and around The Bridgewater Hall.

There will be hour-long concerts throughout the weekend on the main stage featuring dazzling orchestral music from iconic symphonic works to hypnotic minimalist masterpieces. Manchester’s world-beating music ensembles will host world-class artists for whom the boundaries between classical and contemporary, experimental and jazz are blurred.

Free performances will take place in the Barbirolli Room from groups including Psappha and Hallé choirs. Students from the RNCM will provide entertainment in the foyer of The Bridgewater Hall throughout the weekend.

This will be the perfect opportunity for anyone who has never experienced the power of orchestral music or visited The Bridgewater Hall before to experience something new and exciting.
