Orchestra Enigmatic

Orchestra Enigmatic is a chamber orchestra in Louisville, Kentucky that promotes new and local composers, music education, and the arts in its community.

Orchestra Enigmatic is a 21st-century chamber group performing and collaborating with like-minded ensembles and partners. It performs music that is too small, too new, or too exotic to find a home in the classical orchestral canon.

Orchestra Enigmatic exists to expand awareness of new and local composers, to promote music education and music history, and to nurture public interest in the arts in its community. OE exists in the space between the traditional chamber orchestra and the small chamber group by maintaining an agile production model as well as developing a repertoire complete with works for varying sizes of ensembles.

Founded in 2012 by a small group of musicians that were looking for a new experience in music making, OE is a uniquely 21st-century chamber group that performs and collaborates with ensembles and artists, while placing an early emphasis on performance of music that is too small, too new, or too exotic to find a home in the classical orchestral canon.

Our core ensemble is 18 players (string octet, bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, piano, percussion), but we regularly program music for both fewer and greater numbers with guest artists.
