Welcome to Unlock the Music Concert Making

Coventry’s unique performing ensemble

UMCM is a charitable trust based in Coventry that gives musical learners great opportunities to perform as soloists and in small ensembles, and to perform alongside experienced musicians.

Our performing community includes singers, instrumentalists, writers, dancers, visual artists and actors. It centres around the opportunity to explore and collaborate with other art forms. UMCM has many musical friends, including Forte Gospel Choir. Experimentation and collaboration are at our heart and we deliver a rolling programme of family friendly events which are both educative and fun.

UMCM is very proud to include in its ranks the internationally renowned concert pianists Darren Leaper and Cecilia Xi.

Some lovely audience feedback from the Candlelit Baroque Concert

“I was at the Baroque concert last night and it was magical. Truly magical. I have never written to say such a thing after any concert before…but this was so special it had to be done. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to all concerned.”

“…the light…the atmosphere and especially the music were beyond beautiful, so beautiful that honestly I could have wept. And I almost did!”
