Meet the Host, Elysium Consort and Orchestra

Formed in September 2021, Elysium Orchestra and our brand-new Elysium Consort features some of London's most talented young musicians, studying at conservatoires and universities in London and beyond. Elysium aspires to provide audiences with fresh takes on staple classical works, whilst championing new works, particularly those from students, ethnic minority and female composers. Over the next couple of months, Elysium hopes to start a brand new, comprehensive, music outreach programme. This will consist of a series of workshops aimed at children in order to immerse them into the world of music-making.
