Music at Your Place

Are you a musician, singer or composer of opera, vocal or chamber-scale music?

Would you like to do something positive during Covid-19 to connect and make music with your local community in Wales?

Can you think of a new project you could set up and deliver with a
community group in your local area?

If you have answered yes to all 3 questions, please read on!

Mid Wales Opera and Ensemble Cymru want to support performers and composers to work with communities and create projects that…

  • can happen between November 2020 and end of March 2021 whilst being compliant with shifting Covid-19 regulations
  • initiate a genuine musical / community project rooted in local people, history, landscape or culture
  • will create a hybrid-style performance both live and digital
  • allow a community in Wales or part of to make a connection with opera or chamber music

What we can offer you…

  • between £500 and £5,000 to cover total project costs
  • advice on performance and technical aspects of the work
  • help with all areas of marketing

If you have an idea, please…

tell us BRIEFLY about your idea – in Welsh or English – either in 300 written words or in a 2 minute recording, including:

  • your name and contact details
  • what your idea is
  • where your community is
  • why you want to do the project / the inspiration for the idea
  • who it involves and how
  • what it would cost

Ideas should reach us by 5pm on Friday November 6th email

We will then tell you by Friday November 13th if we want you to work with us and develop a project to submit to the second stage, which will involve sending us more details.
