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 regularly play at St.John Sub Castro, a fine old church in Lewes with great atmosphere and acoustics.
We played in the Adur Arts Festival in 2014 and 2016.
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.
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.
