The extraordinary flexibility of Ensemble 360 means that although we play the standard groupings of strings, wind and piano ensemble- we have, since our conception, explored in depth a wide and fascinating repertoire for all manner of combinations of instruments.
Anything from a solo instrument to the almost chamber orchestral sounds of octets, nonets and even larger groups is possible.
Whether a lunchtime, evening concert, themed weekend or week long festival- clicking on the following links will give a flavour of the programmes we can offer:
Each May, in the Crucible Studio with Music in the Round, Ensemble 360 hosts a 9-day themed festival. These concentrated musical explorations include twice daily concerts, pre-concert talks and other thematically related activities.
Ensemble 360 regularly programmes weekend mini-festivals as part of Music in the Round’s season, often focusing on particular composers. These normally last from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.
Each season Ensemble 360 tours for Music in the Round’s nationwide tour giving a narrated children’s concert, an evening concert and either a pre-concert talk or a post concert Questions and Answers session.
