Ensemble Obiora


Created in March 2021 by Allison Migeon (Executive Director) and Brandyn Lewis (Artistic Director), Ensemble Obiora is Canada's first classical music ensemble, composed primarily of professional musicians from diverse backgrounds.

The mission of the Ensemble Obiora is to promote musicians from different cultural backgrounds in order to increase their representation on the classical music scene, and to program unfamiliar works by composers of color whose contributions have gone unnoticed.

Founded on the 3D principles of Diversity, Discovery and Dissemination, the Ensemble Obiora strives to bring a new and diverse voice to classical music in Canada, to create a sense of belonging in underrepresented communities, and to inspire the next generation of classical musicians.
