Do you have a passion for music? Do you like expressing yourself through words? Do you like the idea of writing your own songs?

Our song-writing group meets monthly to create new music, lyrics and words inspired by the themes and stories in our collection and by the artists and events in our creative programme.

This group is perfect for anyone who likes to sing, write creatively, play instruments, write poetry or just loves to be part of something. It’s a great space to find new inspiration and share ideas with a supportive group.

We regularly work with composers, singers, musicians and artists to create new work and learn new ways of making music and weaving together words.

No previous musical or writing experience necessary – come along and give it a go!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The group will include refreshments such as tea and coffee. Feel free to bring along an instrument if you would like to.

This group is ongoing, so we may be working on songs and performing them across the year.

If you have any questions about the group, please email Gemma on: gemma@manchesterjewishmuseum.com

One of the greatest voices of the contemporary UK jazz scene. Her recent album, Meshuga Baby, is a nod to her Jewish heritage. The Yiddish word ‘Meshuge’ means ‘crazy’ - a judgment that Smith describes as “so often passed on brave ambitious women that are not afraid to express their opinions and showcase their talent.”

Quatuor Danel

The University of Manchester’s internationally-acclaimed string quartet-in-residence, Quatuor Danel, brings their lively repertoire to our historic synagogue with quartets written in memory of lost sisters.
