CoMA Manchester: Streaming Blue (Part II) at Phillips Park, Manchester 22 August 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

CoMA Manchester (Contemporary Music For All) is distinctive, in that the ensemble is led by a mixture of professional, academic and amateur musicians. They take on ambitious projects and produce imaginative high quality performances, whilst remaining open for anyone to join them. The group have been tackling the challenges of rehearsing over Zoom during the lockdown, but are now bursting with excitement to share months of hard work with an in person audience. Streaming Blue part II is the second half of a two day mini-festival exploring the sounds and stories of Manchester’s waterways.

In Streaming Blue Part II, you can watch the group perform a brand new commission from artist Kelly Jayne Jones. The piece is being devised with CoMA Manchester throughout August and will take place in the idyllic surrounds of Phillips Park. Kelly has been working with natural materials and making performances happen in alternative spaces for years, so we are very excited to see what she comes up with for the group.

The group have been generously supported by Arts Council England, as well as a diverse, nation-wide community who helped crowdfund part of Kelly’s commission earlier this summer. The event is free to attend however there will be a donation bucket should you want to contribute.
