The Commonwealth Resounds is delighted to be able to welcome the brilliant Dionysus Ensemble, our first-ever Commonwealth Ensemble-In-Residence. A virtuosic chamber ensemble with a string quartet at its core, The Dionysus Ensemble are equally at home on the concert platform, playing for events in both formal and informal settings, as well as providing music education projects. We look forward to a highly productive partnership with them, and are delighted by their strong commitment to cross-cultural musical partnerships, performances and outreach work.
The Dionysius Ensemble have been performing in recitals, operas and concerts for many years and in 2013 moved to add education projects to their repertoire exploring music and communication through composition, improvisation and performance with instruments, songs and sounds, bringing a project to life through music in schools, nurseries, hospitals, prisons and care homes. A founding ethos of The Dionysus Ensemble is bringing live music into situations where none might be present.. It’s these ideas and principals that make the ensemble perfect partners for The Commonwealth Resounds.
