Champagne Reception and Recital for the Friends

Sunday 4 August 6.00pm

Recital by Ensemble Renard (wind quintet)

Ensemble Renard was founded in 2018 by musicians and friends from the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School. A wind quintet at its core, Ensemble Renard puts on exciting and varied performances for audiences of all backgrounds. After less than six months of playing together, they won the Royal Academy of Music’s Nicholas Blake Prize for wind chamber music, and from there have gone on to give regular recitals and workshops across the country, to much acclaim.

“Ensemble Renard are one of the brightest stars in an exciting firmament of really great new chamber music groups”

(Nicholas Daniel June 2023)
