Lutes & Ukes, Theatre of the Ayre’s groundbreaking collaboration with members of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, has become known to audiences including and beyond the classical, as a ‘genre-crashing supergroup’ following two tours, the first of which saw them develop an education project involving nearly 400 ukulele-wielding children across London and York. Inspired by the achievements of the Lutes & Voices, they developed ‘The Masque of Moments’ which highlights the glories of little-known vocal music from the Jacobean and Caroline masque.
Theatre of the Ayre were supported in 2015 by a major award from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. They have served as judges of the National Centre for Early Music’s Young Composers’ Award and continue to branch out into new music, recently performing new settings of Shakespeare and Carol-Anne Duffy for voices and lute.
