Launched in 2017 and supported by PRS Foundation’s Talent Development Partner Network, Resonance is Opera North’s workshop programme for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic professional musicians and composers, working in any genre, and based in the north of England.
It’s a unique opportunity to develop new ideas, to collaborate with performers from other disciplines, and to take your work in new directions.
Following our successful, socially distant ‘Lockdown Edition’ in summer 2020, we’re planning to return to collaborations in person for spring 2021.
Successful applicants will receive up to a week of free rehearsal space in Leeds with support and advice from technicians, producers and other specialists; a grant of up to £3,500 to cover fees for those involved and other costs; and an optional ‘work in progress’ performance opportunity for an invited audience, or a live stream opportunity.
The deadline for applications for 2021 has passed, but if you’re interested in testing an exciting possibility, exploring a great musical idea, in telling a story through music, in collaborating with a filmmaker or visual artist – or something else altogether – we want to hear from you.

The residency could be your first step towards making a project, or part of a longer process that you are working on.
