Ministry of Sound. Three words which have had a vast impact on so many worldwide.

The club, which shaped, defined and set the ultimate standard for a generation of music lovers.
The record label, which redefined the compilation album, with its all-conquering ‘The Annual’ series – outselling artist albums and making the DJ mix album a mainstream art form.
The sound system, around which the club was designed and still regarded as the benchmark to which all other venues aspire.

And now, at the pinnacle of the orchestral dance concepts which have swept clubland in recent years, comes… Ministry of Sound Classical.
