The 21c Global Orchestra at RNCM

Part of our Classical Music in Manchester and the North guide

The 21c Global Orchestra at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 8 July 2022, from £5.00 - Book now

Watch a one-of-a-kind concert at the RNCM this July, with young musicians from leading music conservatoires around the world coming together to perform as an international ensemble: The 21c Global Orchestra.

The idea for this unique concert is to explore the potential of what an orchestra can be in the 2020’s, not only in terms of collaboration, but also in the way music is approached. The programme, as yet unannounced, will feature singing, improvisation and pieces with flexible instrumentation. All of this will come together during the course of three days of workshops in Manchester, where players from Australia, Austria, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, The Netherlands and the USA will join together to prove that boundaries – physical or otherwise – need not apply to the future of classical music.

It’s the first time that the RNCM has put together a concert like this, and it’s a particularly exciting event in the College’s packed Summer Season, which you can read about in our full guide.
