Haçienda Classical At Royal Albert Hall

Date: Wednesday 23rd March 2016 18:45

Venue: Royal Albert Hall, London

Haçienda Classical is a night where two worlds collide

Having sold out two dates in Manchester in a matter of minutes, FAC 51 The Haçienda and Manchester Carmerata, the city’s experimental orchestra are to bring Haçienda Classical to London with a special event at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 23rd March 2016.

The Manchester events became some of the fastest ever selling shows at The Bridgewater Hall and see the Camerata collaborate with the DJ’s who shaped The Haçienda’s sound – Mike Pickering and Graeme Park – for a night of classic dance music, innovatively adapted and arranged especially for the occasion.

The debut London date takes place the week of Easter 2016, and the Haçienda Classical concerts mark the first time that DJ’s from The Haçienda have performed with a full live orchestra in what will prove a unique meeting of worlds.

The legendary DJ’s will select and perform a continuous set of signature Haçienda tracks from the history of dance music alongside the orchestra in this innovative live fusion event where the impressive surroundings of The Royal Albert Hall will be transformed for the night.

Special guests to be announced.

CONCERT: 6.45pm – 11pm
