Cumbria Calling – Tales of Cumberland


In 2017 Cumbria Music Hub collaborated with Orchestras Live and Manchester Camerata to deliver a project for young composers. 30 young musicians from North Cumbria, including Trinity School, Newman, Caldew, Newcastle College and Austin Friars, worked together with composer Andy Smith from Manchester Camerata to create their own piece for orchestra.

The first performance was at The Sands Centre, Carlisle on 10 July at our Grand Summer Showcase. Cumbria Youth Orchestra were joined by players from Manchester Camerata for the performance.

Planning is well under way for the Cumbria Calling II project based in Eden in 2018.
