A Month Of Features, Television And Radio Appearances

Manchester Camerata with Gabor Takacs NagyThe last month has been extremely busy for Camerata in terms of publicity. We were lucky enough to be involved in two BBC Radio 3 In Tune programmes, BBC One’s Sunday Politics show, BBC Radio 4 and a mention in Classical Music magazines. 

You’ll notice that the In Tune programmes are no longer available to watch/listen again.  To make sure you don’t miss out on any more exciting features, follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we will keep you up to date with all our news!
