Katie Manasse

I come from a musical family and have been working in the arts throughout my career. It is an enormous pleasure to be the Artistic Director of Hull Chamber Music, and to be involved in bringing outstanding chamber music to Hull.


I am passionate about inclusivity in classic music, and my aim is to make chamber music available to everyone in Hull and the surrounding area that might want to experience it!


My background includes arts roles with the Orpheus Foundation, University of Hull, Cheltenham Music Festival and the Sage Gateshead. Since 2018 I have been running Polyphony Arts a forward-thinking arts management agency, and in 2020 I launched a podcast, Music Works, discussing the future of the classical music industry.
