Haçienda Classiçal has seen DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, the original DJs behind the unique Haçienda sound, spin club classics in full harmony with a live orchestra, Manchester Camerata, alongside vocals from the AMC Choir and special guests.

The resulting collision of seminal dance music and orchestral instrumentation has breathed new life into club anthems such as ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Voodoo Ray’, ‘Good Life’ and ‘Ride On Time’. Other tracks featured in the live set and on the album include ‘Strings of Life’, ‘Move Your Body’ and Rowetta’s stunning new take on ‘You Got The Love’.

With many requests for a recorded version of the concert, this studio album has been executive produced by The Haçienda, Joy Division and New Order co-founder Peter Hook, together with producer Phil Murphy. The release of this innovative and eagerly anticipated album will allow fans to enjoy the Haçienda Classiçal experience as a recording for the very first time.
