Manchester Camerata 2017/18 Season

Chris Horkan, Music Editor

Featuring Snoop Dogg’s producer, a live video artist, plus a gospel choir and re-interpretations of Muse and Metallica, the 2017/18 season by ‘probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra’ is as diverse and inspiring as ever.

Women in music are celebrated at Who Runs The World…, a concert at the RNCM next March that takes inspiration from talent as diverse as Björk and Joni Mitchell, while the season draws to a raucous conclusion next May with Vivaldi Rocks, which juxtaposes the Baroque composer’s works alongside those by Muse, Metallica and more.
