The London based Equinox Ensemble is one of the newest and most exciting ensembles to have emerged out of lockdown. As an all female ensemble with a piano trio at its heart (Sheida Davis - Cello, Hannah Saucedo - Violin and Caroline Page - Piano) they are actively exploring and programming the works of female composers alongside the classic chamber music repertoire.
As mums themselves, they are passionate about getting music to families, which has led to them teaming-up with narrators and vocalists to become the ensemble in residence for Harmony's Music Club. Their warmth and sense of fun paired with superior musicianship has meant that their partnership with Harmony's Music Club is in demand at events across London and the South East.
How to join in
We love the excitement that seeing personal drawings/paintings/artwork up on the big screen generates and so members of the audience are invited to send us a photo of any drawings/paintings/other artwork which they have done of their mum or granny or other special female for display during the concert. To do this, just send a photo of your artwork to email@example.com by 20 March 2022.

As at the date of going live, in line with current guidelines and recommended practice, we are taking a number of steps to ensure the event remains as Covid-secure as it can be.
We are maximising ventilation, limiting the number of audience members we can admit to the venue (so do book fast!) and politely request, out of consideration for others, that masks are worn during the performance.
If, having booked a ticket, on concert-day you find yourself with one of the telling symptoms of Covid-19, live with somebody who has the disease or for any reason are self-isolating, please do not attend the event.
We regret that we are only able to refund tickets in the event of a government imposed lockdown (we are unable to refund the Eventbrite administration fee) or the concert having to be cancelled because of an unwell musician.
All of the musicians will be tested to ensure that they too are Covid-free on concert-day.
To the extent that regulations change, we will adapt accordingly.
