The Manchester Festive Happening: A Gospel Christmas
Sunday 9 December 2018, 3:00pm

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 Manchester Camerata collaborate with new artistic partners AMC Gospel Choir who brought the gospel vibes last year and had everyone dancing in their seats. A group from the Camerata in the Community programme will also help to spread the Christmas joy by performing a new song that they have created alongside Manchester Camerata musicians. Get ready to sing.
