Colchester New Music

Colchester New Music (registered charity 287932) is essentially a composer's co-operative, promoting concerts, mainly of music by living British composers, particularly those associated with East Anglia. CNM is a member of Making Music.


Concerts and workshops have been given at Essex University, Colchester Institute, Colchester Sixth Form College, Colchester Arts Centre, at the BMIC, the Royal Academy of Music and St Martin's in the Fields, in association with Woodbridge School, the Long Melford Music Society, at Hadleigh (Suffolk), in Brighton and Eastbourne in collaboration with New Music Brighton.




We have worked with fully professional, student, amateur and semi-professional musicians.


CNM has received funding from Arts for All, Arts in Essex, BT, Colchester Borough Council, The national lottery through Arts Council of England, NSMF (making music), the Performing Right Society Foundation. Without this funding we would be unable to operate to the extent that we have up to now.
