Her Ensemble is the UK's first women and non-binary string orchestra, made up of some of the most in-demand orchestral section leaders and chamber musicians in the U.K. and abroad, deriving from the European Union Youth Orchestra.
Since forming in November 2020, the group have already collaborated with artists such as Pixie Lott, released their debut single with award-winning film composer Alexandra Hamilton-Ayres, and have been featured on Scala Radio as well as Help Musicians UK for an International Women's Day special.
“NEW MUSIC GROUPS SEEM TO START UP ALMOST EVERY WEEK, BUT OCCASIONALLY ONE LAUNCHES THAT MAKES YOU NOT JUST LISTEN, BUT ALSO STOP AND THINK"
Marshall Marcus speaking about Her Ensemble
Secretary General, European Union Youth Orchestra
To celebrate International Women's Day and Women's History Month, we designed a poster with as many female composers as we could fit on there!
Our inspiration came from a phrase we'd all heard so many times, so we decided to make a visual representation of this - with all these incredible women in the background being overlooked by this sweeping statement. (So many that we literally couldn't fit them all on the page!)
We are donating half the proceeds to Girls Rock London - an award winning charity, providing high quality music programming for young and adult trans and cis women, and non-binary people, with specific focus on increasing access for people who face barriers to participation.
