Forgotten in History

Through the Noise & Her Ensemble
Ellie Consta – director

Please note, this is a standing gig.

A programme of female composers challenging the gender gap in classical music.

Her Ensemble, directed by Ellie Consta, joins forces with Through the Noise to bring their show ‘Forgotten in History’ to Hyde Park Book Club. Merging aspects from classical and pop scenes, the ensemble performs music written by women spanning the past 2000 years as a response to the discovery that in 2019, just 3.6% of the classical music pieces performed worldwide were written by women.

It’s just not true that ‘there haven’t been that many women composers’. Come and hear for yourselves works from Hildegard von Bingen (c1098–1179, abbess, writer, composer, and philosopher) to the brand new folk-inspired Clan from Joanna Borrett.

Her Ensemble is a free-form group which seeks to address the gender gap and gender stereotypes in the music industry. It is passionate about creating meaningful change by shining a light on music written by women, most of which has been overlooked for centuries.

Though the Noise are creating a vision for the future of classical music: informal events featuring international soloists in cabaret bars, converted warehouses, and nightclubs.
