The Ardeton Ensemble has an impressive array of past concerts behind it, including performances at the Ipswich 'Pulse' Fringe, repeat performances at the Oakham Festival, and a tour to Risor in Norway.
The Ensemble believe passionately that in order to bring a performance to life you have to engage with the audience, whether this is talking between pieces or meeting the audience in the bar afterwards! As a founding member, Dury has been playing cello in the Ardeton Ensemble for over 4 years, and has also taken part in Educational Workshops with the group on performance and composition.
