Northern Lusofonia is a Manchester-based non-profit company dedicated to the promotion of British and Portuguese music as well as to the championing and commissioning of new music. Our musicians come from the finest music backgrounds, from celebrated international musicians to young music professionals trained or graduated at some of the UK's best conservatoires. They all share a special affection for British and Portuguese music and are passionate about sharing it with our audiences.
Northern Lusofonia’s events share the passion and vibrancy of some of the best music written by composers from English and Portuguese speaking countries. Our concerts are naturally welcoming as they foster cultural exchanges among a wider public through the finest music making and a creative programme.
Since its inception in 2015, Northern Lusofonia has followed an ethos of inclusiveness by providing diversity in concert programming and high-level music making in an informal concert atmosphere at affordable prices. All concerts include small exhibitions of arts and crafts, literature or traditional cuisine and wines.
