I’ve been involved in two projects (one my own, one not) to form function/wedding string ensembles that didn’t get off the ground. Ironic, then, that I realised in the course of August I had effectively come to be running one without having planned it as such.
What do you do if you find you have a band? Give it a brand, of course. So please say hello to Flux Ensemble, of which you will be hearing much more in future. While the name is new, I think it’s accurate as well as commercially convenient to consider the same group as having already performed in a variety of contexts, including December’s ‘Christmas Classics’ concert, last month’s garden party string duo, and the string quartet concert of film music last Saturday at which we used the name for the first time.
We have more gigs coming up, even as most musicians are only barely starting to find work again: Fever London have a string quartet lineup booked for two more evenings of film music outside in Camden Stables Market, and for Chopin on a Thames cruise later in September.
But that doesn’t mean we aren’t available for more work! Any and all projects considered, so if you have an event that needs music, or an idea in mind to explore, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me by any other means! And watch this space for more gig announcements …
