Autumn 2021 season
“After a trying 18 plus months for everyone, we are thrilled to bring this hybrid of live and digital shows to our Camerata fans. From a heart-breaking and uplifting film about the effects of Young Onset Dementia with our latest episode of ‘Untold’, to working with one of the most exciting violinists on the planet right now (Patricia Kopatchinskaja) to our annual Festive Happening with the beloved AMC Gospel Choir. This diverse programme feels like one of the most exciting times for Camerata as we head towards our 50th next year.
And from September to December, we’ll be holding Music Café sessions at The Monastery, Manchester every Wednesday for people living with dementia and their carers, as our local and international work in this field goes from strength to strength.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to seeing you soon.”
