“This must be the most multifaceted bunch of musicians in Britain” ‘The Times’
Manchester Camerata aims to create a culture of mutual trust and respect in all parts of its musical and administrative team.
This enables individuals to give of their best, and to be part of making a positive impact for our audiences and communities.
We encourage everyone associated with us to:
1. Be mindful of and respect others.
2. Recognise the importance of individuals feeling heard.
3. Be mindful of our core principles: Humanity – Originality – Excellence – Fearlessness.
Our orchestra give us sound, excitement and creativity, making Manchester Camerata the innovative ensemble it is today.
There’s a real trust between myself and the musicians, and with this comes an openness to taking risks – creative risks that help us achieve the unimaginable. The composer feels an emotion and finds the notes for it – we performers have to find the spiritual values behind each note. This drives me musically – I am not a genius but hopefully have antennas to them.
