Transforming Communities

2017 Auditions for LMN North West, North East & West Midlands – May 22 deadline for applications!


“Live Music Now has been a real asset to my experiences as a musician, offering me the opportunity to use my skills to communicate with audiences who are typically more difficult to reach – from a residency in a children’s cancer ward to performing to an entire school of children with special needs. The support and opportunities LMN have provided have really helped my confidence as a performer and shown me how to use music more creatively within challenging settings.” Delia Stevens, Kabantu

LMN North West is looking for new musicians based in the North West, North East and West Midlands from Classical, Jazz, Folk, World and Rock & Pop genres. LMN offers paid performance opportunities and training to musicians at the start of their professional careers, enabling them to engage with a wide variety of audiences. Auditions will be held in Manchester on the 3rd and 4th July 2017 and the closing date for applications is Monday 22 May.

We’re looking for outstanding artists who want to develop themselves professionally, and who have that spark and passion to share their music with a wider audience including older people in care homes, children with special educational needs, and other vulnerable groups. Help us spread the word! Download the auditions poster here.

“Being a LMN performer at such a formative time in my early career was without doubt the single most important experience of my musical life. To have to re-evaluate everything I thought I knew, and learn to really connect and communicate with audiences took my playing and performing to completely new levels. I am proud to be an ambassador for this wonderful organisation. Thank you to LMN for making me the musician I am today.” Rob Buckland, LMN Alumnus.
