Fresh from an exhilarating European Tour with performances in the Netherlands and Poland, and a transit through Norway, award-winning composer Tze Toh and TO Ensemble return with a concert of brand new works. Inspired by the colourful, breathtaking cities of Amsterdam, Delft, Trondheim and Szczecin, the music weaves an intriguing musical tapestry of Germanic, Nordic, Slavic and Asian cultures.
Experience the splendour of these diverse cities through a gorgeous soundscape presented in TO ensemble's unique music - an exciting contemporary fusion that brings together the grandeur of film music, groundbreaking live collective jazz and carnatic improvisation with sound design.
After the success of the recent concert Oumuamua, we will be performing the music in the Spoiwa Kultury Festival in Szczecin (Poland) in end June, and will also be crowdfunding the album. Stay tuned for updates on both!
We create original works that celebrate both diversity and harmony - we believe our world is greater than the sum of its parts. We understand music, like life itself is a continuous journey of change, growth, evolution. We dream of a united world, and aspire to share stories that connect us all. We believe in the human potential. We celebrate the coming together of cultures. We look to the past to discover the future.
“Sophisticated and accessible.”
