CoMA (Contemporary Music for All) is the UK’s lead organisation promoting contemporary music through participation with an international programme of establishing contemporary music ensembles, commissioning schemes, education projects and digital initiatives. CoMA’s vision is to open contemporary music to everyone, to celebrate participation in new music-making as a meaningful and essential part of our lives.

CoMA’s mission is to create a culture of musical participation, in which amateur, emerging and established music-makers of all backgrounds and abilities forge musical communities and new repertoires. CoMA exists to share those unique experiences and practices as widely as possible across its networks, from audiences to institutions, music hubs to professional ensembles.

The overall aim of the festival is to help create a major shift in the appreciation of contemporary music, an aim it is committed to sharing with the whole of the music sector, through active partnerships with composers, artists and music and education organisations.
