Unquiet: Speakers Corner Quartet
Wed 22 November 2023, 7pm,New Century Hall
UNQUIET is a series of Manchester Firsts for the brave and the curious. Working with a rotating cast of contemporary artists, Unquiet brings fresh new collaborations and world premieres to Manchester and beyond.
For this edition of Unquiet, we present the world’s first Speakers Corner Quartet orchestral show. Joining them will be Coby Sey, Confucius MC, James Massiah, Lea Sen, Leilah, Tawiah and Eska performing pieces from their critically acclaimed album Further Out Than The Edge and more.
Teaming up with internationally renowned conductor Robert Ames, synonymous with collaborations in this sphere, having previously collaborated with Frank Ocean, Actress, Sigur Rós, among others, this show promises to be a night of musical innovation from three creative forces not to be missed.
Speakers Corner Quartet is a testament to the power of collaboration and community. Fifteen years in the making, they now find themselves at the epicentre of the South London music scene and as one of the most influential groups to come out of the city.
Originally coming together in 2006 as the house band for the legendary, Brixton-based spoken word and hip-hop session, Speakers Corner, they’ve since managed to create a family-like bond with one another as well with the artists they’ve joined forces with.
When playing together, they see themselves as a singular entity with a hive-mind mentality, working together to create a unique experience for their audience.
This show will also include the world premiere of new work by Royal Philharmonic Society composer Blasio Kavuma – written especially for Manchester Camerata and AMC Gospel Choir.
Tickets £26.21 (Inc booking fee).
Tickets are available at £10 for under 30s (limited availability), £3 for Gorton Residents, £5 for Students + Booking fee.
This show is unreserved seating.
