Over the next few months, we are continuing to work remotely with our creative teams to develop the live projects that have been postponed.  Fortunately, we are able to honour all contracts we have made with freelance employees and can continue to build on the momentum of the work that has already begun. This includes developing a new project with Manchester Collective, a choral work with poet Alice Oswald, and The Black Saint & The Sinner Lady with Nu Civilisation Orchestra. 

We are continuing to work with our partner schools to support the creativity and ambition of young people who want to make music; by offering online tutoring and masterclasses with amazing musicians. 

We are aiming to employ as many freelance artists and creatives as possible over the coming months to work on a variety of new and existing projects – some of which we look forward to sharing with you online soon. Keep an eye on our social media channels: Twitter, Facebook & Instagram.

We are organising ourselves so that we can continue to support healthcare professionals and medical students over this extremely challenging period, through our programme Performing Medicine. We will also be sharing resources that might be helpful to all those who are caring for one another in the community. Keep an eye on our Performing Medicine blog and social media channels: Twitter & Facebook.

CLOD ENSEMBLE have been making work with independent artists and creatives for the last 25 years. We believe that now, more than ever, we need art and we need artists. During this time of great uncertainty for the artistic community, we will be employing as many freelance artists and creatives as possible to work on new and existing projects. We are inviting our audiences and supporters to donate to the company so that we can continue to work with our freelance creative community now and in the future. If you would like to help, please consider becoming a Friend, Patron or making a one-off donation. Thank you.

We look forward to being able to see you in person before too long.


Suzy, Paul and the CLOD ENSEMBLE team
