Inspire . Entertain . Educate


The Wallfisch Band has, after 8 good years, had to DisBand.

It is with deep regret that I write this.


IT is no longer functioning as an project based orchestra.  The

information will remain online for a while yet perhaps as an example to

others wishing to do something similar. It has been a tremendous

success in every way, and our educational,  and performance goals

have been reached, and




However the Masterclass

is ALIVE and WELL, with the aim to:

  • to inspire the next generation of performers

  • to entertain audiences around the world

  • to educate young professional musicians at the start of their careers...and

  • to give our audiences a really fine 'NIGHT OUT'


What is the Wallfisch Band?

chamber orchestra founded and directed by the world-renowned

Baroque Violinist, Elizabeth Wallfisch

The Wallfisch Band is an orchestra of skilled professionals.

Exceptionally gifted, and motivated young players, at the beginning

of their professional careers, are invited to play with the

Wallfisch Band in our seasons of concerts.


The Wallfisch Band is a 'Living, Working, Masterclass'

 - a Master/Apprentice model-

providing these young players

with a unique opportunity to work intensively alongside the 'Core'

players in music-making at the highest professional level.


They are treated as equals, with compassion and enlightened


This is an electric mix, and makes for wonderful concerts!
