Support Our Ambitions To 2022

Did you know, our Camerata in the Community team are out in Greater Manchester every day, using music to help young and older peop1le overcome barriers in their lives. The impact of our work for people living with dementia, autistic spectrum condition and loneliness has helped stimulate friendship, laughter, increase self-esteem, confidence, and created a sense of belonging. We are at the forefront of innovation, experimenting and disrupting accepted practices in how we create and produce work, through unique collaborations with some of the most extraordinary artists from across the globe. Our focus on quality and innovation means that even if a concert sells out, the income from ticket sales doesn’t necessarily cover our costs, and we want to ensure the ticket price is affordable. We would like our music to be accessible to all, connecting with everyone every time, and we need your help to get us there.
