Ensemble in Residence
Our 2019-21 Ensemble in Residence is GAIA. GAIA is a duo comprised of violinist Katrina Lee and cellist Alice Allen. They will work with us over the next two years, receiving two Scottish concert tours, artists' residencies, specialist coaching, commissions, developmental support, and the opportunity to create and deliver their own learning project. They will also work closely with our Artist in Residence, Kim Moore.
We are absolutely delighted to have been given this wonderful opportunity! The Ensemble in Residence programme is a valuable platform which will allow us to develop not only as an ensemble, but also creatively and artistically during this two-year period. One of our chosen subjects is to champion more works by female composers throughout history, as well as collaborating with female composers of the present. Not only does this topic inspire our ensemble's creativity, but it is something that audiences of mainstream classical music aren't often exposed to. We hope that by highlighting music that has been "forgotten" because of gender, we can influence the listening and programming of classical music concerts to a much wider audience.
