Resonance 2020

Applications from music-makers and composers from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, working in all genres and living in the north of England, are being invited for Opera North's third programme of Resonance residencies, supported by PRS Foundation.

Launched in 2017, Resonance offers professional musicians and composers working in any genre the opportunity to develop new ideas, to collaborate with performers from other disciplines and to take their work in new directions.

Successful applicants for the new round of residencies will receive up to a week of free rehearsal space in central Leeds in March and April 2020, a grant of up to £3,500 to cover fees for those involved and other costs, support and advice from technicians, producers and other specialists, and an optional ‘work in progress’ performance. The structure and support provided will be tailored to the particular needs of each artist.

Visit for an application form, more information on the programme, and a series of short films about the previous residencies. Closing date for submissions is 10am on Monday 14 October 2019.
