Nevis Ensemble’s aim is to take music to everyone, everywhere. The orchestra can be found in schools, homeless centres, mountain tops and supermarkets. 2020’s lockdown prevented live performance from taking place and, as part of its online activity, Nevis asked members of the orchestra to explore music from traditionally underrepresented composers. In this series, Nevis Ambassador Andrea Baker speaks to the musicians about their choices.
