Intimate,immersive, experiences,without parallel.- Bachtrack 

Through thrilling live performances, allied with daring programming and a brazen approach to convention The Manchester Collective bring contemporary classical music to unusual venues. 

Many people told them that this project was impossible. It’s too hard to start a new arts organisation, let alone a movement. Classical music just isn’t relevant anymore. Young people don’t care about culture. Bring it on. And welcome to the new season.

Following a critically acclaimed debut tour, Manchester Collective presents this strictly limited revival of 100 Demons. A collaboration with electronic artist Vessel and composer Daniel Elms, 100 Demons is a rare evening of ambitious, breath-taking performance, exploring the space between strings and electronics. The programme sees two highly-anticipated world premieres –including Elms’ titular, illusory “100 Demons”, commissioned for and by Manchester Collective, as well as Vessel’s exploratory new work – The Birth of the Queen. These works sit alongside a tour de force set that will stretch this augmented string quartet to its limits.
