The Emerald Ensemble

The Emerald Ensemble

The Emerald Ensemble is Bristol’s professional chamber orchestra, and is renowned for its accessible, passionate, warm and virtuosic performances. The group holds a pivotal position in South West music, presenting eighty events per year in the region’s major venues – including the 2005 Bristol High Sheriff’s Gala Concert, and the Wells High Sheriff Gala for the past three years. Formed in 1994 by Roger Huckle, Emerald is a musicians’ collective, bringing together the best of the region’s performers. Roger is a violinist well known to Milverton audiences most recently as one half of Duo del Fuego.

The programme they will played was in reference to yet another celebration: the 150th Anniversary of Elgar¹s birth. The pieces ranged from his piano quintet to Salut d¹Amor.
