Ensembles-in-Residence at Royal Holloway

The Department of Music is fortunate to enjoy the services of three outstanding resident ensembles, CHROMA and the Tippett Quartet. Both play an important role in enhancing our performance programme.

CHROMA

CHROMA ensemble

Founded in 1997, CHROMA is a collective of 20 musicians dedicated both to new music and to revisiting classic repertoire in fresh and exciting contexts, and involving audiences in compelling, inspirational experiences. CHROMA performs programmes of contemporary music here at the College and participates in frequent composition workshops where students are able to hear their own compositions performed by musicians of outstanding calibre.

TIPPETT QUARTET

Tippett Quartet

For over a decade and a half, the celebrated TIPPETT QUARTET has delighted critics and audiences alike with its animated, virtuosic performances and its inspired and attractive programming. They have performed at the BBC Proms, Cheltenham Festival, Snape Proms and numerous festivals throughout the UK and abroad, including tours of Europe, Canada and Mexico. The quartet regularly appears at Kings Place, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Bridgewater Hall and frequently performs on BBC Radio 3. Alongside a busy touring schedule, the Tippett Quartet pursues a keen interest in educational work with both schools and universities and was Ensemble in Residence at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University for 2012-13.
