The Avenue a Ensemble is a UK-based group dedicated to the performance, composition and commissioning of new music and performance pieces. Formed in 1999 by artistic director Tim Adnitt and conductor Anthony Weeden, the ensemble has performed to critical acclaim across the UK. Much of it's dynamic repertoire has been exclusively written by some of the UK's most interesting and innovative composers. The ensemble's programs appeal to a wide variety of musical sensibilities including contemporary classical, film, theatre and jazz. Visual elements form an integral part of the Avenue a Ensemble's live performances through the creative use of staging and lighting, and through collaborations with dancers, physical theatre artists, mime artists and filmmakers.
