The Atéa Quintet is the foremost British wind quintet of their generation. Internationally acclaimed, they recently became double prizewinners at the 2015 Karl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition in Denmark. As the Associate Ensemble in Residence at the Birmingham Conservatoire and Quintet in Residence at the Purcell School, they mentor some of the finest up and coming musicians in the country. Since its formation in 2009, the Atéa Quintet has performed at Cheltenham, Brighton and Lake District Summer Festivals and in concerts at Wigmore Hall, St Martin in the Fields, Bridgewater Hall and St Johns Smith Square. Recent seasons have included a tour to Scotland, the Czech Republic and a residency at the Two Moors Festival. Brought together by their communal love of wind chamber music, the Atéa Quintet have individually received prizes in international competitions, and played with all of the country’s leading orchestras.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
