Coming back from a year of cancelled shows, The Untold Orchestra are packing six of their renowned iconic shows into eight dates throughout June, July and August at Escape to Freight Island. With shows including a night of Stevie Wonder, Bowie, Beatles, Britpop, Motown and three nights of Disney classics. There really is enough music for everyone to enjoy this summer.
Since its formation in 2017, The Untold Orchestra has worked on various collaborations, including recording projects with Grammy-winning pianist and composer Bill Laurance (Snarky Puppy), sell-out Manchester shows ‘Nina: An Orchestral Rendition’ and ‘50 Years of Abbey Road: An Orchestral Rendition’ and their one-off ‘Manchester International Festival’ performance with renowned Manchester rapper Skittles and his group 8 Gold Rings.
Comprising some of the UK’s finest classical, pop and jazz musicians, The Untold Orchestra will be joined on stage by vocalists Jenna G, Martin Connor, Nicole Battick, Dominic Lawson, Mica Millar, Ellen Lewis, Ben Lee Smith, Yemi Bolatiwa, Lisa Olivant and Will Jaquet.
Both the orchestra and the venue have been working hard to prioritise safety for patrons, players and staff, whilst being able to deliver a night of high-quality live entertainment. You can read the venue’s Safe and Social manifesto here.
