Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus sings Mahler's 'Symphony of the Thousand' in Manchester's Bridgewater Hall.

In June 2020 South Yorkshire's foremost large mixed-voice choir will sing Mahler's magnificent Symphony No. 8, known as the Symphony of a Thousand, with the Liverpool Welsh Choir and the Cantorion Sirenian Singers, accompanied by the Wrexham Symphony Orchestra in the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

This very special concert will form the culmination of the orchestra's groundbreaking Mahler Charitable Concert series, which has seen them perform all Mahler's symphonies to increase awareness of the impact of Alzheimer’s and dementia. The Mahler 8 marks a return to the Bridgewater Hall, following the orchestra's critically acclaimed debut there with the Resurrection Symphony in 2015. Sponsored by medical research company Cobalz Limited, who specialise in the field of Alzheimer’s, the Mahler Charitable Concert series has raised over £15,000 for Alzheimer’s and dementia charities.
