Kinetic Manchester provides a platform for UK contemporary composers to have their work performed in a relaxed social environment, outside of the regular, more formal Concert Hall.
The success of their first event in December, featuring works by Manchester-based composers from the RNCM and Salford University, has prompted the Kinetic team to hold frequent events of the same ilk. Join us on May 2nd at the Anthony Burgess Foundation for an insight into current movements in UK chamber music, as some of Manchester’s most innovative young composers come together to present a night of exciting new music.
