Talent Development Partner: Psappha
Psappha Contemporary Music Ensemble; Supporting the Creation and Performance of Fantastic New Music by Composers at all Stages in their Career
Psappha is recognized as a premier performer of new music nationally and internationally. As the only stand-alone, professional contemporary classical ensemble in the North of England they play a crucial role in supporting living composers through the commissioning and performance of innovative, high-quality new music.
Within the PRSF Talent Development Partnership Programme Psappha will produce the Manchester Series, a series of concerts across three venues in the city, and their Composing For scheme, which will support 24 emerging composers at postgraduate level to work through a series of personalised one to one sessions. The Manchester Series season will celebrate and remember their Patron of 20 years Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and the artistic programme will reflect Manchester and Salford’s artistic depth.
