The Elsewhere Ensemble “Words which sing, notes that speak.” The Elsewhere Ensemble has been based in Eugene, Oregon since 2018 and was officially created in 2012. The group was previously based in New York City and Paris. Many of Elsewhere’s performances bring music together with stories, poetry and theater. Their works combine the old with the new – literature or stories from the past come to life through new music; or classical music repertoire is presented with new writing or in new ways...always in the belief that classical music and literature shouldn’t be for an elite but are a human necessity. In Eugene, they have presented Icarus Quartet, Chekhov Triptych – three Chekhov stories in concert, The Happy Prince, and Letter to Brahms, among other original works. In the past, the group has performed in New York, Paris, Montreal, Beirut, Lyon, Brussels, Boston, and Portland and have also participated in both the Edinburgh and New York International Fringe Festivals.
