Song-writing with Noga Ritter



Manchester Jewish Museum Learning Studio


Free, email to join

Our song-writing group are a group for people who love making music. Newcomers are welcome and no previous experience needed!

This November guest artist Noga Ritter (the Israel-born singer-songwriter known for her Hebrew-Jazz fusions) will be working with the group to write a new song about ‘change’. You will be invited to write your own lyrics and melodies around what change means to you and what changes you want to make in the world. Members of the group will be encouraged to write and sing in their own languages to create a multilingual piece of music that will be performed at Noga’s performance as part of Synagogue Nights on Thursday 25 November.

Noga will also talk through how she explores change in her own music and how music can have the power to make a real positive change.

The perfect group for anyone who like to sing, write lyrics, play an instrument or just get creative and meet people.
