Chamber Ensemble

Elja is an Icelandic chamber orchestra which has become known for its lively and energetic performances in recent years. The ensemble held its debut concert in December of 2017, and has since performed various concerts each year all around Iceland. Its members are some of Iceland's most advanced young musicians, most of whom have already established themselves as some of the country's most active performers, conductors, and artists. Many of Elja's members studied together at the Reykjavik College of Music and the Iceland University of the Arts, before pursuing further education abroad.

The goal of the ensemble is to give exciting and energetic performances that reach the audience on a personal level. The ensemble is dedicated to varied and innovative programming and seeks to engage, not just with traditional classical styles, but with a broad range of musical styles and genres.
