It works with writers, film makers, dancers, scientists and artists as well as rising talent, whilst also reaching out to work with young people. Its projects are ground breaking. It is the first orchestra to perform in the Pyramid at the Louvre Paris and stage a contemporary opera at London's Shakespeare’s Globe involving two nobel prize poets Seamus Heaney and Derek Walcott.

Its future vision is both ambitious and challenging. Over the last year Manning Camerata has been working to establish a new home in Woolwich, where over the next five years it will be working in partnership with the London Borough of Greenwich to establish groundbreaking new music and orchestral concert series, long-term education work and larger collaborative productions with other arts organisations and individuals.

• become the first entrepreneurial arts group centred around classical music
• be a socially responsible organisation that builds meaningful links with the diverse communities in the geographical locations in which it works
• advance and promote the education of the public in the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of music.
• play a leading role in the Woolwich regeneration programme
• be the first environmentally sustainable classical group
