Music Inspired by Nature – Saturday evening 7pm
We are very excited to now be able to bring you a choice of music inspired by nature performed by The Chamber Ensemble of London and Peregrina EnChantica.
Please enjoy the beautiful music of The Chamber Ensemble of London and Peregrina EnChantica:
The Chamber Ensemble of London – a group of up to fourteen string musicians, hand-picked from London’s finest and directed by virtuoso violinist Peter Fisher.
Our versatile programming, often using special arrangements and new music, has led to engagements with the London Film Museum, the V&A, several music societies and at various festivals outside London. Our repertoire includes baroque, classical, romantic and jazz and we love to champion both new music and rediscovered scores from our creative past.
The beauty and wonder of our natural world has inspired a vast catalogue of composed music over the centuries and we look forward to sharing a selection of these pieces with you during Virtual Birdfair ………. including music from Antonio Vivaldi to Ralph Vaughan Williams.
As soon as possible after Virtual Birdfair weekend please come back to enjoy the equally beautiful work of Peregrina Enchantica
Peregrina EnChantica is a project-based vocal ensemble, named after the Peregrine falcon, aiming to ‘enchant’ audiences with performances of fully original music by its founder, composer Zory Burner. The ensemble presents a compelling fusion of musical genres in Zory’s song-cycle, dedicated and inspired by nature, in support of nature and wildlife conservation and with a special focus on birds.
As musical ambassadors of the cause, Peregrina EnChantica adds an artistic impulse to the work of numerous nature conservation organizations, contributing to a variety of events and initiatives, from David Lindo‘s National Bird Vote to RSPB’s Skydancer project, Hen Harrier Day by BAWC (with performances at Rainham Marshes Nature Reserve in 2016 and 2017) and Birdfair festival (2017 and 2019) at Rutland Water Nature Reserve, as well as performing at multiple national and international music festivals.
The ensemble also provides a platform to special guest speakers in their own self-organised events, called lecture-concerts: exclusive evenings of captivating music, featuring thought-provoking words by individuals from the wildlife conservation world. They have featured Dr Mark Avery, Charlie Moores, Dr Debbie Pain, David Lindo (The Urban Birder) and young conservationist Findlay Wilde.

Both recordings will be available to watch for 3 months after Birdfair
