Biography

The Broen Ensemble is a recently formed string ensemble based in Glasgow. The ensemble performs in multiple conīŦgurations, from quartet to large ensemble, collaborating with a variety of artists. The players met at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland during their studies and now work with some of the best orchestras in the UK, including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Opera and Welsh National Opera.

After a successful performance at the Glasgow Cathedral Festival, the ensemble were immediately invited back to the festival and have enjoyed performing to sold-out audiences. This gave them the opportunity to open the Lunchtime Concert Series at the University of Glasgow. Other future projects include their London debut at the Purcell Room and a collaboration with cellist Robert Irvine to premiere Eddie McGuire's new cello concerto throughout the UK as part of their three-year recital and ballet collaboration commitment at the RCS.
