The Swinsian Ensemble
The Swinsian Ensemble, based in central London, is a professional string chamber orchestra of twenty-two players and conducted by the exciting young conductor Justin Fung. The ensemble performs alone, together with various soloists, and sometimes, according to the programme, augments to a larger ensemble. A particular emphasis is on the collaboration with singers to perform with the ensemble.
The ensemble predominantly relies upon the support of companies, patrons and private individuals. We intend to push the boundaries, endeavouring to commission new works from emerging composers, along with engaging emerging soloists as well as the more established solo performers and composers.
Hire The Swinsian Ensemble
The ensemble is available to hire for private or corporate occasions in a formation to suit your event with the half-size 11-player string orchestra, the full 22-player string orchestra, the extended 40-player chamber orchestra with added woodwind and brass, and the 75-player full symphony orchestra – please direct any enquiries through our contact details on our ‘contact us’ page.
An important aspect of the ensemble’s endeavours is the encouragement of up-and-coming young musicians who are either, nearing the end of their performance studies or, who have recently completed their studies. This is an excellent opportunity for them to gain invaluable experience alongside established professionals with the possibility of remaining with the ensemble after the completion of their studies.
The Swinsian Ensemble want their audience to have an enjoyable, encompassing, thought-provoking and sometimes challenging experience – ideally mirroring the experience of the players themselves. We feel that to create a work of art that is the ‘concert experience’ requires the synthesis of the composition, the performers, and the audience!
