The award winning Helix Ensemble is a flexible group of experienced musicians from the East Midlands who perform chamber music
and small orchestral works. The Helix Ensemble has given the first performances of more than 20 new compositions since their foundation in 1992, and has won two awards from the Performing Right Society for their innovative concert programmes.
Our programmes explore rarely performed chamber or small orchestral works combined with more traditional items.
The Helix Ensemble has premiered a number of pieces by composers in the region.
Professional musicians are invited to direct and coach every concert.
“… the dynamic contrasts and the excellent Helix strings left a happy impression.”
“The 22 strings, an ideal number, excelled themselves”
“… what mattered was the balance and moulding of the phrases so that every motif was audible.”
“Friendship is a key part of our success in creating a warm and supportive environment for intensive rehearsal.”
“The variety of approach and ideas is stimulating to both the players, audience and professional musicians alike.”
