Wales’s leading chamber music ensemble, Ensemble Cymru, will mark its 15 year anniversary with a very special and extended concert at Venue Cymru this autumn. Bringing together world-class musicians with a passion for sharing rare chamber music from Wales and the world.
Ensemble Cymru will put Welsh composers in the spotlight with a performance of John Metcalf’s Not the Stillness and the work of an emerging young Welsh composer, Claire Roberts.
