The soundtrack to 50 years of love, hope and celebration, Pride Classical fuses anthemic melodies with irresistible rhythms and evocative lyrics.

Danny Beard – winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race – leads a lineup of incredible singers and musicians in an evening of brand new orchestral arrangements at The Bridgewater Hall, presenting the songs and music of Pride as you’ve never heard them before.

In the opening weekend of Pride Month, Danny’s joined by West End star and soloist, Matt Henry; Alison Jiear, star of Jerry Springer: The Opera and a Manchester Pride regular; and by a chorus, orchestra and ensemble of outstanding LGBTQ+ performers and allies.

At the heart of the concert is a brand new Pride Anthem, conceived and composed by local community members and performed by the full orchestra to celebrate what Pride means today.

Songs by disco stars, divas and drag queens mark the moments in which we’ve fallen in love, declared our love and learned our love is possible. Now through new orchestral arrangements, same-sex duets and medleys juxtaposing eulogy and euphoria, this concert celebrates everyone who shares our love, and our pride.
