A classical music group will play a concert at the Manchester Brewery


This is the latest in a series of concerts that the Collective has organized to bring classical music to more unusual places.

Craft beer and classical music will collide when an ensemble from Manchester performs at a brewery in the city.

The band are known for their unusual lineup and the concert will be the latest example of the collective taking well-known classic works to more unusual places.

Here’s what you need to know about a night where Brahms meets beer.

What is the Manchester Collective event at the Track, when is it and how can I get tickets?

Manchester Collective are hosting a gig in the unusual setting of Track’s brewery and bar on the Piccadilly Trading Estate.

Audience members can purchase a ticket that includes a specially selected beer presented as part of the show by Track’s brewing team.

The musicians will then take center stage for a performance that will include Johannes Brahms’ romantic chamber piece fainting, the String Sextet in G major and Arcadiana by contemporary composer Thomas Adès, a piece for string quartet exploring change, loss and disappearance of paradises.

Music will be heard in a relaxed and friendly setting with a selection of hoppy craft beers brewed by Track.

This is the latest in a series of concerts the collective has staged since its inception in 2016, bringing classical music out of the standard concert hall, with previous gigs taking place at venues including nightclubs such as The white hotel in Salford.

The concert in the brasserie bar is on Wednesday October 26 from 6:30 p.m.

Tickets cost between £12 and £16 are available at Eventbrite.

What have we said about the collaboration?

Stefan Melbourne of Track Brewing said: “We are delighted to welcome Manchester Collective to the dining room. When we built this space, the goal was to use it for events that bring together the creative energy that this city has in abundance.

“We love that the Collective tries to make classical music more accessible and uses interesting and different spaces to achieve this. We can’t wait.
