Did you know that just 5% of the classical music pieces programmed worldwide are composed by women? 

Her Ensemble, the UK’s first women and non-binary string orchestra, make their debut to celebrate over 2000 years of female composers.

Deriving from the European Union Youth Orchestra, Her Ensemble brings together some of the most in-demand orchestral and chamber musicians in the UK.

Merging aspects from both classical and pop scenes, the mould-breaking group will perform a range of music written by women, combined with artistic lighting to reinvent the classical concert experience and canon of classical music as we know it.

Music will include their own arrangements of BingenMahler and Boulanger amongst others, and feature BBC Young Musician string finalist Elodie Chousmer-Howelles, award-winning film composer Alexandra Hamilton-Ayres and singer-songwriter Caitlyn Scarlett

 

“New music groups seem to start up almost every week, but occasionally one launches that makes you not just listen, but stop and think”

– Marcus Marshall, Secretary General, European Union Youth Orchestra
