Perpetuo is a dynamic and versatile collective of musicians who perform a wide variety of traditional and contemporary chamber music in new settings, regularly taking music to venues including museums, cafes, found spaces and other unexpected locations. Through collaborations with everything from dancers to photographers to chefs, the ensemble seeks out audiences who have never engaged with classical chamber music.
Perpetuo was founded in 2013 by English Oboist, James Turnbull and has since appeared in numerous festivals such as St. Magnus (Orkney), Rye, Totally Thames and Little Venice. Perpetuo’s projects have been generously supported by organisations such as the Arts Council England and PRS Foundation in order to bring new music and exciting collaborations to a new audience. In recent years, Perpetuo has commissioned composers such as David Fennessy, Donald Grant, Alasdair Nicolson, Aidan O’Rourke and Ailie Robertson as well as working with composers such as Thomas Hewitt Jones, Cecilia McDowall and Roxanna Panufnik on their music.
