‘Warm your soul at this Christmas carol concert with a gospel twist’
—Manchester Evening News
The Festive Happening is now a Manchester musical tradition, flocking to the Albert Hall from the Christmas Markets, imbibing mulled wine and mince pies as you go perhaps, but most definitely there to enjoy some world-class music at the most wonderful time of the year. This year sees us collaborate with our good friends and artistic partners AMC Gospel Choir who always bring the gospel vibes and have us all dancing in our seats.
A group from our Camerata in the Community programme will also help to spread the Christmas joy by performing a new song that they have created alongside our musicians. Get ready to sing.
VENUE: Albert Hall, Manchester
