About Minerva Ensemble

Considering that the music you select for your wedding is the ultimate form of self-expression and then consider Minerva Ensemble. As a very special classical trio of oboe, violin and cello they create a unique sound that will provide you with a peaceful easy feeling for you and your wedding guests to sit back and enjoy. Vastly experience with a repertoire that they have been adding to since 1996, there is very little that you cannot ask them to perform.

Experience

Minerva Ensemble has been performing at weddings, private functions and public concerts since they graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Currently all play with major orchestras in England, such as:

  • Halle Orchestra
  • Liverpool Philharmonic
  • Opera North
  • Manchester Camerata
  • BBC Philharmonic

Services offered

They play many styles, ranging from opera arias to Broadway shows, from classical favourites to popular songs; should you have any particular piece in mind, they will also be delighted to learn it if not already in their repertoire and play it for you on your wedding day. They are available to play at any stage of your ceremony and reception.

  • Experience:
    The Minerva Ensemble is a trio of graduates from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, all of whom are now professional musicians playing with the orchestras in the North of England. These include the Halle Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic, Opera North, Manchester Camerata and the BBC Philharmonic. Whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music we formed a successful Wind Quintet performing with several instrumental combinations. As our music progressed we developed as a trio of strings and oboe, allowing the elegance of the strings to be heard as you expect at a wedding, combined with that of the lyrical and warm sound of the oboe. Minerva Ensemble have been performing at weddings, functions and public concerts since 1996. We have had the opportunity to play at recitals, festivals and competitions as well as tour across Europe and teach through the “Live Music Now” organisation. We have also recorded a number of performances and performed concerts all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world both as a group and with many other orchestras. With a wealth of experience playing both together and as individual musicians, we have developed a unique and beautiful sound
