CoMA Manchester

CoMA Manchester at RNCM Play Festival, March 2021

About us

CoMA Manchester was revived in March 2020 during the National CoMA Festival and has been rehearsing remotely due to the ongoing pandemic, and more recently in person!

We are an inclusive mixed ensemble who welcome instruments as well as noise-making objects in our group. We have a lot of fun in our rehearsals, and we enjoy chatting as well as making music together!

We hold monthly rehearsals at St Margaret’s Church, Whalley Range in South Manchester. If you’d like to join us, get in touch!

Our repertoire over this time has included Sarah Hennies’ Growing Block and Everything Else,  Paul Newland’s Locus, James Saunders’ they are always different, they are always the same and Michael Parson’s Rhythmic Canons, among others.

To find out more about us or join, email us at manchester@coma.org.
