Formed in 1991 by Artistic Director Tim Williams, Manchester-based ensemble Psappha specialises in the performance of work by living composers and in music of the 20th and 21st centuries. The ensemble is unique in its artistic offering as the North of England’s only stand-alone, professional contemporary classical music ensemble.
Psappha is known for its invigorating performances of composers’ works, including Reich, Maxwell Davies and Turnage, as well as young and emerging composers who it supports through the ‘Composing for…’ programme. A National Portfolio Organisation for Arts Council England and a Talent Development Partner for PRS for Music Foundation, Psappha is based at St Michael’s, the former Italian Chapel in Ancoats, an inner-city area of Manchester that was once the cradle of the Industrial Revolution.
WildKat PR are working with Psappha on the press and PR campaign for their 2018/19 programme.
