Radical artists. Unexpected sound worlds. The Manchester Collective describes itself as “a new kind of arts organisation, built for a fresh and diverse musical world. We create intimate and intense human experiences inspired by the music that we love, for everyone.” Known for experimental programming and daring collaborations, Manchester Collective brings a combination of cutting edge contemporary music and classical masterpieces to diverse audiences. 

Sirocco is pure joy and energy – a great storm of music that celebrates the warmth and diversity of cultural traditions from across the globe. Guest directed and narrated by South African cellist Abel Selaocoe, a rapidly rising star who is redefining the parameters of the cello, this program covers everything from outrageous arrangements for solo cello to beloved classics; from a set of original African music to a collection of gorgeous Danish folk songs. When this program toured across the UK and Europe, critics described it as a “deeply moving” and “once in a lifetime experience.”
