The KORROS Ensemble

ELIZA MARSHALL - FLUTE     NICHOLAS ELLIS - CLARINET       CAMILLA PAY - HARP

 

The Korros Ensemble is a dynamic trio with an international reputation for their unique and distinguished performances.The group comprises flute, clarinet and harp, creating a rarely heard soundworld of unusual and beautiful textures and colours.

Eliza, Nicholas and Camilla met whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music, and founded The Korros Ensemble in 2002. Korros have made numerous festival appearances, including Sounds New and Canterbury festival, Deal, Ashford, Swaledale, Sittingbourne to name just a few. They have performed in concert venues such as London's Cadogan Hall, Tate Modern, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Stradbally, Birr Castle and Killaloe Cathedral in County Clare, Ireland. More recently, Korros were invited to the Orbyhus and Hudiksvall Festivals in Sweden.

The group was formed with a strong vision of introducing something new and exciting to the chamber music world. Having very little existing music written for this combination of instruments, they have focused on developing their own broad repertoire, mostly using Nicholas Ellis's accomplished arranging skills. They have collaborated with Ballet Rambert, resulting in three commissions by Patrick Nunn, Phillip Venables and Naomi Pinnock. Korros's passion for contemporary music has also led them to work with John McCabe, Andrew Morgan and Seanine Joyce.

As strong advocates for education and outreach work, Korros have enjoyed a nation-wide series of workshops and concerts for young people, including several recital tours of Camphill Communities throughout England & Scotland.
