The Hallé: Six O’Clock Classics at The Bridgewater Hall, City Centre, 8 March 2018, from £5.50 - Book now

This special event replaces the standard early evening commute home with performances of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Verdi and more by The Hallé.

Running from 6pm until 7pm, Six O’Clock Classics promises a whistle-stop tour through nine well-known pieces – with highlights of the programme including Debussy’s Clair de Lune, Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Sibelius’ Finlandia. With Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pas de Deux’ from The Nutcracker and Beethoven’s Finale from Symphony No. 7 to round off the roughly hour-long concert, it promises to be a balanced programme of classics.

The Hallé will be conducted by Johann Stuckenbruck, the Royal Academy of Music graduate who is currently assistant conductor at Glyndebourne. With members of the orchestra introducing the music being performed, this concert promises to be a world away from your typical rush hour spent negotiating traffic.
