Our work focuses on repertoire of the late 20th and 21st centuries, and through concerts and education projects we are committed to drawing connections between music and other areas of the arts, science and nature.

The Theseus Ensemble’s patron is distinguished conductor and composer Pierre Boulez, and its founder and conductor is Geoffrey Paterson, winner of the 2009 Leeds Conductors Competition and member of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House.
