Ensemble Membership

Those playing or singing in CoMA Ensembles are required to be Ensemble Members of CoMA nationally. This funding helps CoMA support the ensembles, with music, marketing, insurance, membership of Making Music and development. This is separate from local subscriptions which fund Music Director and venue costs.

Membership levels

Standard£3 per month
Concessions£2 per month

Please pay the standard membership (or more) if you can afford it.

We do not want to exclude anyone from CoMA because of cost. If the concession rate is difficult for you financially, please let us know on the application form and we will contact you to arrange a lower rate.

Commissioning programme

We commission at least five works a year from both established and emerging talented composers. This programme, so vital to the success of our mission, has resulted in a unique and much valued collection of hundreds of contemporary works suitable for a wide range of ensembles and abilities. These works are regularly used by music colleges and conservatoires, and performed by youth, amateur and professional ensembles in major international festivals such as Bath, The Huddersfield Contemporary and Sounds New.

You can contribute to the Commissions Fund by setting up a standing order (for regular contributions) or making an online transfer with the following details (note that this is a different account from the one used for membership and events).
