Manchester Collective 2019-20

19 Jan 2020 — 20 Jun 2020

Manchester Collective is a new kind of arts organisation, built for a fresh and diverse musical world. 

Proudly partnered with The Stoller Hall as our Ensemble in Residence, Manchester Collective creates intimate and intense human experiences, built around live music, for everyone.

We are the true believers. We passionately believe in the power of music and theatre to move us and to excite us. It doesn’t matter to us if you’re a seasoned concert-goer, or if it’s your first time. All are welcome.

From the concert hall to the factory, from the recital room to the mill, the only thing we ask of you is that you open your ears and let yourself listen. Really listen.

And in return, we will create something extraordinary.
