At the heart of the 12 Ensemble is a close-knit group of talented, like-minded musicians. We're passionate about performing together on stage without a conductor, bringing classical music to life and sharing it with more people along the way.
The music we play might be diverse, but it's always an emotive, life-affirming journey. And that's how we aim to perform it live, whether it was written 400 years ago or yesterday.
No conductor, just 12 musicians creating moving experiences in the moment...
A new, immersive experience...
In a world where (for now) we're separated from live audiences, 12 Ensemble want to fill that void with a new, immersive online performance experience.
Taking full use of the extra space required for socially distant performing, we want audiences to actually get closer to the musicians than ever before.
- Roaming camera operators take the viewer 'inside the orchestra'
- Multiple camera angles give viewers a unique concert experience
- Incredible sound quality brings you closer than ever before from home
