CoMA West Midlands is one of the newest CoMA regional ensemble. We are a growing group, with the usual CoMA mixture of amateur, semi-professional, and professional musicians. We meet monthly to rehearse and workshop a mixture of pieces written by group members and works from the CoMA library.
The group currently meets at the Performance Hub of University of Wolverhampton’s Walsall Campus.
On the 4th March 2016 as part of the national Contemporary Music for All Festival we worked with partners BCMG and Wolverhampton University to create a successful allcomers weekend event in which composer Michael Finnissy conducted his “Plain Harmony” and a new commission by Tansy Davies “The Third Key”. The weekend included composing sessions by Finnissy and Davies, an open discussion group and an exciting concert involving CoMA West Midlands, CoMA East Midlands, BCMG all-comers and Birmingham Contemporary Voices.
If you would like to join please contact us using the email below. You are welcome to come to a free taster session.
