Ensemble Perpetuo is a dynamic and versatile collective of musicians who perform a wide variety of traditional and contemporary chamber music in new settings. Founded in 2013 by English oboist, James Turnbull, Ensemble Perpetuo aims to bring chamber music to new audiences through exciting collaborations and innovative repertoire choices.Ensemble Perpetuo is building numerous partnerships with composers, theatres, dance companies, chefs, artists, photographers, film makers and digital studios. It seeks new pathways in which to experiment and augment the concert experience through multi-art form collaborations. Perpetuo has also embarked on a number of exciting mini-residences throughout the UK and is taking music to new venues including concerts in theatres, museums, cafes, found spaces and other unexpected locations.

Perpetuo have recently appeared in the Rye Festival and recorded their debut recording due for release in June 2015 by Champs Hill Records. An exciting season of events lies ahead for the group in 2015 as they begin a series of site specific performances of chamber music in found locations throughout London.

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.
