About us

The Seraphin Chamber Orchestra was founded by Emma and Joy Lisney at King’s College, Cambridge University, in February 2017.

Seraphin has at its heart a dedication to music education through artistic excellence. The Seraphin Project exists to foster collaborations between musicians across generations and cultivate these new connections in performances ranging from chamber recitals up to full scale orchestral concerts. SCO seeks to provide experience for top student players working in a condensed intensive fashion which fits in with their studies, in collaboration with young professionals. The Orchestra also aims to support emerging composers, encouraging them to explore the possibilities of writing for strings and granting them performances of their work in an open-minded culture and by committed players.
