Priceless Classics

Halle - Priceless Classics
The Halle orchestra is aiming to attract new and wider audiences with Priceless Classics its first ever 'pay what you like' concert. The concert is at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on Sunday 6 September at 6pm. The orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell, will perform selections from popular classics starting with Bach and finishing with Bartok, Ligeti and John Adams. The music will be introduced via presentations on a big screen. The concert will be casual, audience members can come and go as they please and take drinks into the auditorium. Then afterwards, they can pay what they think the concert was worth. It will be interesting to see if the experiment works, and especially if there is any follow through from the audience.

Tickets are free but have to be booked, OnLine. You can hear more about the concert from a film on YouTube.
