Manning Camerata are the classical group for the 21st century. We create innovative events that are centred on music and invigorate other disciplines. We renew the ethos of the Florentine Camerata as we work with scientists, artists and musicians. We celebrate the diversity of knowledge and opinion which makes contemporary life so inviting yet precipitous. We deliver both content and style. We demand sustainability.
