BROEN ENSEMBLE is a young and exciting string ensemble based in Scotland. Formed in 2017, they strive to perform works that are less well-known or rarely played, alongside the more familiar masterpieces. In 2019, the ensemble were winners of the Tunnell Trust Award.

The size of the group changes from quartet to large ensemble which allows them to be more creative when choosing their repertoire. To support them in their work, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland held the ensemble’s first concert and later engaged them for a three-year recital and ballet collaboration commitment which included performing at the opening of the Solheim Cup in 2019. Recognising their success, Chamber Music Scotland (formerly Enterprise Music Scotland) invited them to perform at their Showcase Concert and then featured the ensemble on their website.

Members of the Broen Ensemble when not performing together work with some of the best orchestras in the UK such as the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Welsh National Opera.
