About Us


Epiphany is an adaptable music ensemble of professional musicians offering creative musical events with an emphasis on improvisation and innovation. We offer a wide range of musical styles - from more formal classical concerts to our unique ‘Sound Portraits’.

Most of Epiphany's musicians play in leading orchestras and ensembles throughout the UK and Europe including the Hallé, Manchester Camerata, BBC Philharmonic, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, CBSO, Northern Sinfonia - to name but a few.

Epiphany offers a wide range of musical styles and expressions, however. We tailor our music events according to the environment we are working in — everything from concerts to gentle relaxation music to spontaneous improvised music events at art galleries and other public events – all designed to fully engage with our audience.

Epiphany have worked in many different contexts: from art galleries to the Houses of Parliament; from charities working with refugees & asylum seekers, recovering alcoholics/drug addicts and homeless etc. to care homes and hospices; from formal concert venues to community events. They have played for many professional organisations, including in the education sector. They have also travelled extensively outside of the UK, including to Sweden, France, Belgium, Northern Ireland, Hong Kong and Vietnam.

Epiphany have a passion for excellence in the arts and a shared Christian faith which we believe combines to bring a fresh experience to the listener. We believe that music can communicate beyond spoken words and has the capacity to engage the listener in creative ways. Music has a role not just to entertain but also to enhance the quality of life itself by bringing space into our fast-paced, hectic lives, relieving stress and bringing new perspectives.

Epiphany is available for booking for concerts, arts events, community outreach, business functions, educational workshops and other creative events.
