The Kings Place stage at Cubitt Sessions is proud to present 12 Ensemble, a pioneering un-conducted string ensemble. Modern, dynamic and virtuosic, the group has rapidly developed a reputation as one of Europe’s most exhilarating collectives, moving audiences worldwide with powerful musical experiences. Formed in 2012 by Artistic Directors Eloisa-Fleur Thom & Max Ruisi, the 12 Ensemble’s unique approach to rehearsing, performing & programming sets them apart as a revolutionary ensemble relevant in the 21st century. Exploring great music of the past alongside ground-breaking new commissions and collaborations with outstanding contemporary artists, the ensemble sets itself no boundaries and reaches diverse audiences with exceptional musical experiences.

We’re delighted to renew our partnership with Cubitt Sessions, presenting two free stages at the outdoor, electrifying music festival at Coal Drops Yard. This year, between 11-22 August, King’s Cross presents a programme featuring classical, world music, jazz, street culture, opera and family-friendly shows, with some familiar favourites as well as exciting new acts for you to enjoy. Kings Place is proud to present dynamic and virtuosic string group 12 Ensemble, and award-winning steel band, Endurance. This year Cubitt Sessions has also partnered with the youth-led charity, Small Green Shoots, providing apprenticeship opportunities during the festival, as well as Tête à Tête, Lafayette, Anthony Whitworth-Jones, and English Folk Dance and Song Society.
