Manchester Collective: The Show That Never Was, online, 2 May 2020, free entry - Visit now
Manchester Collective continue their excellent lockdown programming this Saturday as they tell the story of the show that never was.
This live broadcast features gorgeous music by George Crumb – whose dramatic masterpiece, Voice of the Whale, was supposed to be the centrepiece of the Collective’s tour which was originally scheduled to take place this week. As well as George Crumb, Manchester Collective presents the world premiere of a new work by Alex Groves.
There will also be a whale talk from a museum expert, complete with an anatomically incorrect plush toy whale for the purpose of demonstration… Truly, what more could one ask for?
Watch on Manchester Collective’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.
Presented in collaboration with Oxford Contemporary Music
