Making Music in Manchester During World War I

Professor Barbara Kelly, Director of Research is PI on a 2016 AHRC funded project: Making Music in Manchester during World War I.

Assisted by College Archivist Heather Roberts, researcher Geoff Thomason, partners and volunteers, the project will involve an important performance element to recreate some of the music heard at the RMCM and in the North West during and just after the war years.

The RNCM will also work with regional bands to explore the fascinating story of WWI bandsmen who, on their return from service, received scholarships to study at the College after the war.
