About us

CoMA’s vision is for contemporary music to be open to everyone, celebrating participation in new music-making as a meaningful and essential part of our lives. Our mission is to create a culture of musical participation and collaboration. We establish environments for amateur, emerging and acclaimed music-makers of all backgrounds and abilities to build musical communities and new repertoires. CoMA exists to share those unique experiences and practices as widely as possible across its networks, from audiences to institutions, from music education providers to professional ensembles. We run contemporary music ensembles throughout the UK, plus workshops and residencies, with an expanding international programme. CoMA's music collection, including commissions from leading and emerging composers, is a unique resource for amateur, professional and youth ensembles.
