The Orchid Ensemble performs educational and community concerts at colleges and universities, as part of the institutions’ concert series or at special events. Concert length ranges from 45 min, 60 min, to 90 min, with or without intermission.
The Orchid Ensemble’s musicians are experienced in talking about their music and instruments on stage. Whether performing original compositions or new arrangements of ancient music, they share about the stories/background of the music. In more intimate spaces, the musicians welcome/encourage interactive discussion with the audience.
A typical residency may include day time lectures and outreach programs for young audience over a single day to multiple days, and finish with an evening concert. The Orchid Ensemble also offers special hands-on program for university/college choirs, orchestras, or chamber players to collaborate with the ensemble to rehearse and perform together.
