Elbow & The Hallé

Elbow and The Hallé was a collaboration for Manchester International Festival in 2009. The two hour set, orchestrated and conducted by Joe, was performed alongside the 90 piece Hallé Orchestra and 40 strong Hallé Youth Choir. The two celebrated performances took place at The Bridgewater Hall and was live streamed into Castlefield Bowl to 5,000 extra fans. The concert ended with the Town Hall bells ringing out 'One Day Like This'.
