As part of their vision to redefine what an orchestra can do, Manchester Camerata are giving audience members the chance to experience the orchestra at the closest possible quarters.
For their Season Opener, España Beethoven and The Beatles on 26 September, ten audience members will get the chance to sit in the thick of the action with the orchestra as they perform Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.
The Stage Experience ticket holders will be seated on stage during the second half of the concert (Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony), taking their seats as normal for the first half of the concert.
The second half lasts approximately 40 minutes and tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis.
Bob Riley, Chief Executive, Manchester Camerata said: “Following our UpClose series last season, our audience members asked to be closer to our musicians. So we decided to offer 10 people this fantastic opportunity to get as close as you possibly can to the orchestra and make a much deeper connection with the music.
Manchester Camerata is constantly looking for new ways to bring their audiences closer to the music and are no strangers to redefining what an orchestra can do. Hacienda Classical – a unique collaboration with DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering in which the renowned DJs will perform a continuous set of signature Hacienda tracks alongside the 40 strong orchestra – has become one of the fastest selling events in Bridgewater Hall history and sold out in 5 minutes.
Stage Experience tickets are available on a first come, first served basis by calling The Bridgewater Hall Box Office on 0161 907 9000 or visiting in person.
