‘We all know music’s power to bring us together. This was stupendously evident as the classical organisations of this very city united for Manchester Classical. It was a marvellous weekend of the finest music-making, with affordable passes making the average concert less than £2 to attend. Mancunians came out in force to discover and take pride in the remarkable musical forces on their doorstep.'
