Blackbird Ensemble

Directed by composer and Silver Scroll winner Claire Cowan, Blackbird Ensemble is a theatrical chamber orchestra.

The players are trained in classical, contemporary, pop and jazz music genres. The ensemble performs in varying sized groups, from four to 30 players, and play music by living composers with clear themes, enhanced by visual and theatrical elements.

It is part of our philosophy to bring a new audience to classical music. We achieve this by presenting shows in new spaces by young people with an immersive theatrical experience.

In the seven years since inception, Blackbird Ensemble have produced nine independently funded shows to a growing audience.
