THE MAGNARD ENSEMBLE – Wind Quintet (Sponsored by the Tunnell Trust)

Since 2012 the MAGNARD ENSEMBLE have built a reputation for delivering both high quality concert performances and dynamic educational projects.

The ensemble made their international debut at the Culture & Convention Centre Lucerne, Switzerland in January 2017. During the 2014/2015 season, the quintet simultaneously held a Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music, as well as the inaugural joint fellowship between the RAM Open Academy and Wigmore Hall Learning.

Currently the Ensemble are selected artists for the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust, the Tillett Trust Young Artist Platform and the Tunnell Trust.

The players all follow their own professional performing careers, appearing as soloists, chamber musicians and with orchestras including London Philharmonic Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia, Royal Northern Sinfonia, the BBC orchestras, and major UK opera orchestras.
