Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble’s performance and education ethos.
Featuring the program, “Enchanted Isle”:
Rolling hills and green valleys, rugged mountainsides and hidden villages, a place where the wild and the cultivated sit side by side – the unique character of the land we call home has long been an inspiration for artists and musicians alike. Folk repertoire has been passed down through the years, a continuous cultural identity that is renewed by successive generations according to its own tastes and fashions. Enchanted Isle casts a contemporary eye on this landscape. New arrangements of Scottish and Irish melodies sit alongside compositions set to texts by some of the greatest English poets, conveying a sense of both longing and of profound belonging.
