Giving chamber music a reboot, in the places you’d least expect, mixed with any genre. Courses, compositions and a monthly bar residency

Classical Evolution is giving chamber music a reboot. We play in the last places you’d expect to hear classical music where you can have a bite to eat, experience visual art, sit under a tree, look at the stars. We bring together world famous soloists with professional orchestral musicians, students and brave amateurs on an equal platform to perform deeply loved repertoire, brand new fresh-off-the-page compositions and everything in between. We play in rock venues, forests, art galleries, beer tents, cafés- anywhere that gives our audiences a unique experience of classical music. After 3 years of putting on gigs with Classical Revolution and running courses at Evolution Arts centre, we've put it all together. Informal, top level classical and chamber music gigs in weird and wonderful locations, all with our unique informal vibe. We have a monthly residency at Night and Day Cafe on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, one of the most loved and established music venues in the UK. We also took Classical Evolution's GenreFluid residency to the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 with production company Leoe&Hyde. Courses with international classical and world musicians, all in a relaxed but highly focused atmosphere with homemade food. Premieres of the incredible wealth of new music being composed in the North West and beyond. Collaborators with visual artists, poets, theatre... it's all going on!
