MCR: Classical - Celebrating the genius of Victoria Wood - For families and the Young at Heart!


Sat Jun 24 2023 at 11:00 am to 12:00 pm


The Bridgewater Hall | Sale, EN

This family concert – a world première arrangement – has been commissioned by the Victoria Wood Foundation. The piece will be performed by the Hallé Children’s Choir and the full forces of the Hallé. It will showcase some of Victoria Wood’s most memorable songs, newly orchestrated for the occasion by composer Howard Goodall CBE and Victoria’s long-term Musical Director and friend, Nigel Lilley. Victoria believed passionately that music and the arts should be a vital part of every child’s education – it’s the theme of her 2014 film That Day We Sang, which also features The Hallé Children’s Choir and the Hallé. They will celebrate Victoria Wood’s unique work and legacy – now woven into the DNA of the UK’s cultural life – with a little help from Henry Purcell and a Dinner Lady…
