Classically Yours featuring Manchester Camerata win RPS Award

Classically Yours set out to engage new audiences by addressing the inequalities of opportunity to access high quality live orchestral music in the East Riding of Yorkshire, transforming beliefs in isolated coastal and rural communities that culture happens elsewhere. The programme, part of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s contribution to Hull UK City of Culture 2017, formed part of a wider plan to engage more people in music across the county and achieve significant audience development in the region.

The partnership involved four orchestras – Manchester Camerata, Sinfonia Viva, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia – four venues and the Music Education Hub and included 8 concerts, 3 participatory projects and 46 workshops reaching over 2,000 people.
