London Myriad Ensemble
Since its conception as a professional chamber group in 2004, the London Myriad Ensemble has performed regularly both in the UK and internationally. It performs a wide range of repertoire, including new music, as a flexible ensemble with a wind quartet as the core, which expands to include piano and strings. Individual members have worked with major ensembles and orchestras in the UK and internationally, including the RPO, Hallé, Royal Opera House and BBC Symphony Orchestra.
As 1st prize International Competition winners in 2009, the London Myriad Ensemble performed at the Purcell Room in the Southbank Centre and also live on BBC Radio 3.
The ensemble perform regularly in recital including at notable venues such as St. Martin-in-the-Fields, St. James’s Piccadilly, Fairfield Halls, the National Portrait Gallery and the residence of the British High Commissioner to the Seychelles. They also enjoy providing music for a variety of events.
With a keen interest in new music and in expanding the repertoire in particular for woodwind chamber ensemble, London Myriad have given several UK and world premieres, and performed as resident ensemble with composers from ‘New Music Brighton’. The ensemble regularly work in education and outreach; they run a popular course for pre-formed advanced wind ensembles at Benslow Music twice a year, and also gives school outreach workshops.
In their capacity as Concordia International Artists they have hosted, devised and led a number of large outreach workshops and performances at Wiltons Music Hall as part of their Young Audiences project in Tower Hamlets and beyond.
