About Us

We are an exciting, new chamber ensemble based in London, UK. We believe in bringing a wide variety of chamber music to new audiences using exciting new cross-art collaborations to offer immersive concert experiences.

Ensemble Perpetuo is a dynamic and versatile collective of musicians who perform a wide variety of traditional and contemporary chamber music. At the heart of the ensemble, is a desire to engage with audiences and offer an immersive concert experience that shows through connective programming how chamber music can be experienced in innovative ways.Ensemble Perpetuo is building numerous partnerships with composers, theatres, dance companies, chefs, artists, photographers, film makers, and digital studios, as it seeks new pathways in which to experiment with and augment the concert experience. Perpetuo has also embarked on a number of exciting mini-residences throughout the UK; taking music to new venues and offering a number of different kinds of concert experience. These include concerts in schools, theatres, museums, cafes, found spaces, and other unexpected venues.

Social responsibility and outreach projects are an integral aspect of the work Ensemble Perpetuo undertakes within the community. With each concert, Perpetuo engages in a rich variety of local community performances, workshops and activities. In particular, the musicians’ commitment to bringing live music into schools and working closely with areas of music therapy for Alzheimer’s patients are a core part of our work before and after every performance.

Ensemble Perpetuo is made up of active soloists and orchestral musicians who can be found performing in numerous orchestras and prestigious venues throughout the UK.

Education and Outreach

Find out more about our education and outreach initiatives.

At the heart of Ensemble Perpetuo, is a firm belief that we should bring live music to as many people as possible. We believe that our music should not just belong in concert halls but in a wide variety of venues that would normally not host concerts.

When constructing our concert programmes, we are always devising education and outreach projects that bring the music we play into local schools and communities.

We believe that with our music, we can stimulate and empower people of all ages and backgrounds. No matter how much experience our workshop participants have had with music, we always aim to create engaging schemes of work with clear learning outcomes that enable all participants to leave having engaged with a wide variety of musical genres and styles.

All members of Ensemble Perpetuo have been CRB checked and have extensive experience of teaching and workshop leading. If you are interested in having a workshops by Ensemble Perpetuo in your school or organisation, please telephone us on 020 8123 1675 or email us from our contact page.
