Resident Orchestra: Aurora Orchestra
Artistic Associates: Alan Bearman Music, Brodsky Quartet, Cryptic, Edition Records, London Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Poet in the City, The Sixteen
We champion our collaborative partnerships, many of which have been part of our artistic programme since Kings Place first opened in October 2008.
We are home to the Aurora Orchestra, who has had its headquarters in the Music Base since 2009 and was formally appointed as Resident Orchestra in 2013. In addition, there are eight Artistic Associates – Alan Bearman Music, Brodsky Quartet, Cryptic, Edition Records, The Sixteen, London Sinfonietta, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Poet in the City, all of whom have been involved in various successful collaborations and imaginative curations at Kings Place since its earliest days. The latter three have their offices at Kings Place, too. Kings Place is also home to the long-established London Chamber Music Society, which co-presents the highly popular London Chamber Music Sundays.
Our partners have played pivotal roles in our year-long flagship series Unwrapped since its launch in 2009 as well as various education and outreach projects. Other notable highlights past and present include the Brodsky Quartet’s critically-acclaimed Complete Shostakovich Quartets cycle, The Sixteen’s performances of their much celebrated nation-wide Choral Pilgrimages, Remix – a joint project from the London Sinfonietta and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Allegri Quartet’s Beethoven-Shostakovich cycle as part of the London Chamber Music Sundays, and an ambitious series of concerts from Aurora Orchestra encompassing all of Mozart’s 27 piano concertos, starting in 2016.
