We Are Migrants

Migration has been in the DNA of the RNCM from its earliest roots, when in 1893 the German-born conductor Sir Charles Hallé realised his vision of founding a Northern conservatoire which became the Royal Manchester College of Music. Ever since then, musicians have migrated to this city from all over the world to study, teach and perform here.

Move forward to 2019/20 and the RNCM now has over 950 students from 55 countries, each with their own unique experience of migration. #wearemigrants celebrates the stories and creative output of musicians past and present who have left their homes, through choice or necessity, and explores the impact of migration on their music and on their adopted countries.
