“After the first few shows of 2016 we wished we’d got to the point more quickly. The DJ set I created built slowly, just like the best DJ sets do. However, we soon realised that this concert has a different energy. The expectation of the crowd at each show is so electric and infectious so this time we’ll be hitting everyone smack in the face, right between the eyes from the very start.” Graeme Park
Following great critical acclaim and phenomenal demand FAC 51 The Haçienda and Manchester Camerata, the city’s experimental orchestra are bringing back Haçienda Classical in 2017 with a brand new soundtrack for the concerts for a run of new show.
The set list will be kept under wraps until the opening night but Graeme Park who has put together the soundtrack alongside Mike Pickering reveals that the tunes for the second year will mark a move forward for the club meets classical event
“It would have been easy to keep most of last year’s set list, but as we dug deep into the rich seam of classic tunes that were big at The Haçienda it became clear that there are so many tracks that deserve the unique classical treatment. I also think that last year’s show was so successful and inspiring that we should move forward rather than resting on our laurels.”
The incredible show sees the DJ’s who shaped The Haçienda’s sound – Mike Pickering and Graeme Park – collaborate with the Camerata for a night of classic dance music, innovatively adapted and arranged especially for the occasion.
As The Hacienda’s dance heritage collided with the world of classical music, the concerts have been widely praised with dates selling out in minutes and great audience responses from the gigs. For a list of reviews see below.
Moving into its second year, the tour returns to venues that hosted this year’s inspirational nights as well as new locations, recreating the seminal tracks that defined a generation at the original club, renewed afresh and rearranged for a classical orchestra.
With Hacienda Classical shows in 2016 fully at capacity, tickets for the 2017 shows are sure to be hugely in demand.
