Getting to know Manchester International Roots Orchestra

We are excited to give the stage to the brilliant Manchester international Roots Orchestra (MIRO) at our upcoming ‘The Big Conversation’ event on 27th January. This unique orchestra includes talented musicians from across the globe, who skilfully embrace a range of genres while channelling their diverse musical influences from Europe to Africa and beyond.

Creative producer Remi, says “The aim is to bring people of different ethnic backgrounds, beliefs and musical styles together. Through the musical and cultural diversity within the orchestra, we have become ambassadors of cultural integration.”

MIRO is led by the brilliant Romanian-born double-bass maestro, composer and renowned musician Michael Cretu.

Come along to The Big Conversation at the Whitworth Art Gallery on Sunday 27th January 1-3pm to enjoy a free, live performance.
