Ceruleo formed in November 2014 at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Taking communication, collaboration and experimentation as the basis to grow as a group, Ceruleo create dramatic programmes using spoken text alongside music for two sopranos and continuo. They aim to engage their audiences without the need for lengthy programme notes and translations, making them a very environmentally friendly ensemble!
Ceruleo made their debut at the Barbican Centre, London thanks to the Institute of Musical Research. They were delighted to be Brighton Early Music Festival’s Early Music Live! scheme participants for 2015/16, which saw them appear as part of the Brighton Early Music Festival 2015 alongside leading Educational Workshops in local schools. Ceruleo recently performed their ‘Passion and Seduction’ programme in the London Festival of Baroque Music at St John’s Smith Square, in the Antiqua 2016 series in Accademia del Ricercare, Italy and as part of the Oudemusiek Fringe Festival, Utrecht. Ceruleo have recently collaborated with the Museum of London, giving concerts and workshops in their ‘Fire! Fire!’ exhibition. Upcoming performances include more concerts commemorating the Great Fire of London at St Olave’s Church, Hart Street and St Martin-in-the-Fields in September. They will be performing at St Peter’s Wallingford in May 2017 as part of the Brighton Early Music Festival Promoters Scheme.
Ceruleo are delighted to have been offered an Artist’s Fellowship by The Guildhall School for 2016/17.
Ceruleo have a busy schedule of concerts in 2016, including performances at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Fenton House. For further information, including details of future engagements, please have a look at our Diary.
