Her Ensemble perform Alma Mahler: Die Stille Stadt live at The state51 Conservatoire
Her Ensemble is the UK's first women and non-binary orchestra, passionate about channeling their talent into creating positive change on the gender gap in the music industry. Deriving from the European Union Youth Orchestra, the ensemble brings together a diverse group of like-minded friends who are now some of the most in demand string players in the UK and abroad. Founder Ellie Consta was inspired to form Her Ensemble after realising that in 2019/20 (pre-pandemic) just 3.6% of the classical music pieces performed worldwide were written by women. Since forming in November 2020, the group have already undertaken several recording projects, including a collaboration performance with Pixie Lott in partnership with the Body Shop for the charity End Youth Homelessness, released a collaboration single with award-winning classical-electronic composer Alexandra Hamilton-Ayres, and were featured by both Help Musicians UK and Scala Radio for an International Women's Day special.

Pixie Lott - Landslide
I’m so happy to be supporting tonight’s #SleepOut with The Body Shop, who are raising money for End Youth Homelessness throughout the festive period with a performance of Landslide by @stevienicks @mickfleetwoodofficial. They are asking us all to give up our beds for just one night in aid of raising as many donations and as much awareness as possible to the charities across the country that End Youth Homelessness supports. Go to @thebodyshop website to donate or get involved, it’s not too late to join #ActTogether 💚 Massive thank you to all of the team: Arrangement: Ryan MacKenzie Mixing and mastering: James Knight Production: Ryan MacKenzie and James Knight Recorded at Knight Time Studios Videography: DFR Visuals Glam: Athena and Gabrielle Location: @AsylumMaverickProjects Strings: @herensemble Piano/Keyboards: Ryan MacKenzie Guitar: Sandy Buglass Bass: Jon Clifford Cox Drums: Rian O'Grady
