Mixing a live DJ soundtrack from Graeme Park to the full orchestra, additional musicians, vocalists and special guests, Hacienda Classical previous two sold out events at The OVO Hydro saw immense reactions for the emotively powerful shows which pleased clubbers and critics alike across some very memorable nights.
