Contemporary Music For All Festival: Birmingham Whatever your experience, if your ears are open to new music, you need to be here! Celebrating a decade of CoMA’s ground-breaking Open Score project, the Festival of Contemporary Music for All promotes contemporary music with a participative approach. Join musicians from the world-renowned Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, the CoMA East Midlands and CoMA West Midlands ensembles, and contemporary choral specialist Via Nova to rehearse, workshop and perform pieces by composers with strong CoMA associations – Plain Harmony by Michael Finnissy, a new version of The Second Key by Tansy Davies, Howard Skempton’s The Flight of Song and a new vocal work by Percy Pursglove. These will be performed alongside other CoMA pieces in a public concert on the Sunday evening. Both Finnissy and Davies will attend, and will also lead an all-comers creative workshop on the Saturday evening. Anyone aged 18+ can play or sing and all are welcome – but participants must be able to confidently read music; experience in a choir or band/orchestra is desirable but is not essential.
