Never miss another 'Ensemble 360' show
Ensemble 360, Maggie Steed
"The Paris Salon was a centre of hedonistic social and artistic life and none was finer than the one run by Winnaretta Singer, heiress to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune and a grand patron of the arts. Yet this formidable and enigmatic woman, who was a talented musician and artist, did not merely host performances for entertainment and kudos. Her energies transformed the salon into a crucial creative force that became the birthplace of pioneering music by Fauré, Debussy and many others.
The strings, wind and pianist of Ensemble 360 bring the salon to life with the help of actress Maggie Steed who will, in the guise of Winnaretta, introduce this exclusive world inhabited by Proust, Diaghilev, Jean Cocteau, Virginia Woolf and many others. The programme includes music by Poulenc, Debussy, Fauré, Rossini, Ravel and more."

Ensemble 360 has quickly gained an enviable reputation across the UK not only for the quality and integrity of the members’ playing, but also for their ability to communicate the music to a range of different audiences.
Formed in 2005, eleven musicians of international standing came together to take up residency in Sheffield with Music In The Round, establishing a versatile group comprising five string players, five wind players and a pianist. The members believe in concerts being informal, friendly and relaxed occasions, and perform 'in the round' wherever possible. Having an audience on all four sides brings with it an intimacy and immediacy between musician and audience that other layouts cannot match.
'Eleven international musicians, brimming with body and soul with passion, vitality and virtuosity, whose performances never cease to amaze' (The Independent)
'The emotional chemistry was manifestly unusual... pure magic' (The Sunday Telegraph).
