London Conchord Ensemble - One of Europe's leading chamber ensembles


“Putting chamber music back into the chamber”

Central to London Conchord Ensemble’s ethos is a strong desire to bring chamber music to life, in context.
The ensemble’s mission is to make chamber music relevant, to allow audiences the chance to stop and be in the moment, with an immediacy and sense of space. With a vibrant performance style and charismatic personalities, the musicians have an innate ability to communicate on many levels and to convey the importance of experiencing art.

London Conchord Ensemble typically presents programmes with anything from 3 – 8 players: the trademark being the rich combination of strings and wind, with the added element of the piano.
