New Music North West 2017 at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 13–18 November 2017, free entry - Visit now

Over six days in November, New Music North West takes open-minded audiences on a whirlwind tour of 20-plus concerts featuring 20-plus premieres around Manchester and Salford. Since 2013, this festival has celebrated the wealth of creative talent in the North West.

Highlights in 2017 include Mark-Anthony Turnage’s residency, plus a collaborative concert between the BBC Philharmonic and new music ensemble Psappha at The Studios in MediaCityUK. The Ebonit Saxophone Quartet performs two world premieres, meanwhile, in Manchester University’s Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall – while the Vonnegut Collective and Animikii Theatre experiment for their new collaboration, The Jungle Book Project, in the RNCM’s Carole Nash Recital Room.

With Chetham’s School of Music, St Michael’s in Ancoats, the Great Northern Tower and the Digital Performance Lab at University of Salford also hosting events and performances, New Music North West continues to live up to its reputation as the largest, most exciting festival of new British music.

Many of the programme’s events are free.
