More Wild, Weird and Wonderful music on 2nd July 2017 – don’t miss it!
CoMA Sussex was established in 2005 and now has over 20 members. You can hear some of our recent performances at https://soundcloud.com/comasussex
We are an active member of the East Sussex Music Hub.
Brighton Springboard Festival 2013 invited us to be the resident ensemble for its Composers’ Workshop.
Our memorable moments!
- We have just performed in a pub for the first time – our Whiskies of Islay gig at The Brunswick in Hove in May 2017 was a triumph!
- In 2016 we played for the first time at the East Sussex Music Centre – we will play there again in 2017
- In 2014 and 2016 we took part in the Adur Festival in Shoreham by Sea.
- In April 2012 we took part in Gavin Bryars’ epic ‘The Sinking of the Titanic’ at Southampton Guildhall (a collaborative event with the Southampton Concert Orchestra).
- We’ve given concerts at Chichester University, in partnership with the lively student contemporary music group there.
- We’ve played at Lancing College.
- We’ve performed at Brighton Live (in Brighton’s Jubilee Library), Soundwaves Festival (twice), Arundel Town Festival (2009 and 2010), at Charleston Farmhouse and at Brighton’s Concorde 2 (where we played Louis Andriessen’s Workers’ Union).
- We’ve given two workshops in collaboration with Worthing’s Revolutionary Music Group.
- As well as CoMA commissions and Open Score pieces, we regularly perform music composed by our own members, and other new and experimental music.
CoMA Sussex meets once a month, except in August, on the second Sunday from 2.30pm to 5pm. We rehearse in the Recital Room at the University of Sussex.
