Bristol Ensemble are looking to bring more top quality music to the people of Bristol, and to build on the reputation for innovation and excellence that we have established over the last 22 years. We are keen to expand and develop Preludes, and to grow our multi-media and collaborative orchestral work to bring our music in an engaging and exciting way to an increasingly discerning, diverse and cosmopolitan audience. Our core concert activity has (with a few exceptions) always been financially self-supporting, with ticket sales broadly covering costs. However, this does depend on a lean cost structure and a certain amount of voluntary support. To support the Ensemble to effectively grow we are seeking donations to support a range of exciting and innovative projects planned for the future.
