Belsize Square Synagogue: Todah V

The Wallace Ensemble was founded in 2001 by Benjamin Wolf, Andrew Morley and Hazel Cropper while they were conducting students at Trinity College of Music. Although it usually performs as a chamber orchestra, it has also given concerts of both symphonic and chamber music. Highlights of the past few years have included Jewish music concerts at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room, the inaugural Wallace Ensemble Composition Competition, schools concerts, its own concert series at Marylebone Parish Church and St James' Church, Piccadilly and concerts for the Mill Hill Music Society at the Arts Depot in Finchley. In 2007, it recorded its first CD of string music, produced by Opera Omnia, and in 2008 it collaborated with The Zemel Choir in its event, Celebrate With Song, at St John's, Smith Square. It has performed a number of works by living composers, including first performances of works by two of its conductors (Andrew Morley and Benjamin Wolf) and pieces by Basil Athanasiadis, David Lloyd-Mostyn, Rohan Kriwaczek, Kyla Greenbaum and Malcolm Miller.
