About Us

Our Mission
The Takoma Ensemble brings lively, professionally produced classical concerts to our diverse community. Through accessible, affordable performances of music that ranges freely across time and type, we will expand the local audience for orchestral music and broaden the notion of what the genre can be.

Our History
The Takoma Ensemble was created by Victoria Gau and Susanna Kemp who recognized the need for a new kind of chamber orchestra in the area. Members are freelance musicians. As a free-range, organic ensemble, we have a commitment to present concerts which are fresh and appealing.  We believe not only that live classical music should be available to all and that the program should be relevant, respectfully irreverent, and within reach of all music lovers.  

We are proud to participate in the City of Takoma Park We Are Takoma series.  You can view these concerts in the We Are Takoma TV pages.

The Takoma Ensemble is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

We love live, local and classical.
