CoMA Sussex was established in 2005 and now has over 20 members. You can hear some of our recent performances at

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.
