Event Details

Lumas Winds is a dynamic, young chamber ensemble based in London.

Winners of the 71st Royal Overseas League Mixed Ensemble Prize in 2023, Lumas are committed ambassadors for wind chamber music and the rich variety of repertoire that it offers. The ensemble are Making Music’s Phillip and Dorothy Green Young Artists and will take up an Aldeburgh residency in March 2024 as Britten Pears Young Artists.

Alongside performing the classics of the repertoire, Lumas enjoy exploring and making a case for works not currently in the canon but which deserve to be so. Lumas won the Royal Academy of Music’s Historical Women Composers Prize in 2022 with its performance of the latter, a major discovery from the ensemble’s visit to the Maconchy archive at St Hilda’s, Oxford.
