UK Chinese Ensemble

The UK Chinese Ensemble comprises internationally recognised virtuoso musicians resident in Britain. 

The ensemble was founded in 1994 with the aim of extending the appreciation of Chinese music in the West. The ensemble seeks to promote a wide variety of traditional repertories and as well as to explore contemporary styles.  

In addition to regular concerts, the ensemble presents workshops and other outreach events for a wide range of community groups. Recordings include an ensemble CD as well as many collaborative projects and film scores.

Since its founding, the ensemble has performed throughout Europe. In the United Kingdom, the ensemble has been featured at the Edinburgh International Festival, the Jersey Folk Music Festival, and at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
