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 lydia@midwalesopera.co.uk.

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.
