The event will take place at Manchester Central on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November 2013 and is open to anyone who has a passion for music, from aspiring bands and musicians to schools and families, trade exhibitors and industry professionals.“

Teresa Rogers, Manager, Black Cat Music said, “It will be a great opportunity for customers in the north west to meet the staff from Black Cat Music and examine the latest music education equipment products. Music Show event supporters, Black Cat Music, are planning to exhibit a number of products at the show selected from its comprehensive programme of music performance equipment. Examples include music stands, staging, choral risers, music folders and conductors’ equipment. Black Cat Music enjoys exclusive distributorship of Wenger Corporation’s extensive product range – acknowledged as the largest manufacturer of fully-guaranteed staging and music performance equipment in the world.”

Teresa continued, ”The event also offers the chance to discuss any noise problems with experts from Black Cat Acoustics and sister company, who will also be in attendance at the show. In addition the company’s Mark Rasmussen and Martin Loft will be running a workshop – Simple Solutions to Noise Problems – currently scheduled to take place at 1 pm on Friday 15th November. Black Cat Acoustics provides authorative guidance to steer anyone experiencing noise problems quickly towards pin-pointing a solution. Or, if preventing noise related nuisance is the issue, then sound isolated music practice rooms can provide the answer. Discover also the additional benefits these custom built self-contained, air-conditioned acoustic spaces provide for the comfort of musicians and sound quality, not to mention the improved utilisation of space that can be achieved.”

Chris Martin Event Manager at Hamerville Media Group, who are organising the event commented: “Manchester has a thriving music scene and is home to some of the greatest musicians so it is the ideal place to bring The Music Show. The event aims to educate and inspire anyone who has an interest in making music. “The event will be a huge celebration of talent from our city and across the North West, and will feature some fantastic live performances across the two days. We want to celebrate all music tastes and represent people at different stages of their careers, from those at school level to established artists.”

Students from schools in Greater Manchester, part of the Greater Manchester Music Hub, are amongst those already confirmed to take part in the show, and will perform on stage during the live performance sessions. Carolyn Baxendale, Head of Bolton Music Services, the lead organisation of Greater Manchester Music Hub, said: “Music really matters in Greater Manchester and I am delighted to see The Music Show coming to our region in November. The great thing about the Show is that it will give all those involved in music education and the music profession a chance to celebrate together the huge impact that music has on all our lives. “The Greater Manchester Music Hub is looking forward to celebrating some of its work with young people from across the region at the show.”

Chris added: “In the coming weeks there will be some exciting announcements on live performances, guest speakers and exhibitors. There will be such a lot going on, anyone who is interested in making music should come along and see what’s on offer.”
