Solem Quartet Ensemble in Residence

Partners and Affiliate Organisations

Solem Quartet


The Solem Quartet has been ‘Ensemble-in-Residence’ at the University of Liverpool since September 2016. They have performed a number of outstanding Lunchtime Concerts and contributed to teaching and learning through performance and composition turning their talents to classical, pop, acousmatic and gaming musics.

Praised for their “immaculate precision and spirit” (The Strad) and “cultured tone” (Arts Desk), the Solem Quartet has established itself as one of the most innovative and adventurous quartets of its generation.

Ensemble 10:10

At Home in The Tung Auditorium

The Tung Auditorium is the new home of Ensemble 10:10 – the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s contemporary music group. Ensemble 10:10, which was formed in 1997, will deliver at least four concerts a year and will work with students and staff in the University’s Department of Music. This arrangement builds on an already wide and active partnership between the University and the Liverpool Philharmonic, encompassing concert activity, education and teaching, and the Classical Music Industry MA.


The Tung Auditorium Affiliate Organisations

Allerton Brass and Liverpool Mozart Orchestra are the first Affiliate Organisations at The Tung Auditorium. The appointments come at the end of an open call to community music organisations in Merseyside and a competitive tendering process that reflected the great wealth of music activity in the region. Allerton Brass and Liverpool Mozart Orchestra will present up to three concerts each in The Tung’s 2022-2023 season and benefit from a package which includes use of backstage facilities, Front of House staffing, technical and marketing support. The activities of both groups will also involve working with Music staff and students.
