Eligibility:

We’re looking for musicians aged 14-18 to take part in a project that explores the musical identity of Manchester.

Over two weekends in May and July you’ll make new music together that responds to the question:

What does Manchester sound like to you?

If you live and breathe this city and want to represent its musical identity, the Manchester Experimental Orchestra is perfect for you.

And don’t worry, it’s not that type of orchestra. 

We’re looking for musicians who play any instrument or genre of music. You could be a gospel singer, a producer, a guitarist, a rapper, a spoken word artist, a drummer, a violist or anything else!

To take part you just need to be:

A musician playing any instrument or genre of music

From or living in Manchester (with an M postcode)

Aged 14-18

Available for all the project dates below
