The Whiteknights Ensemble was formed in 2017 and was born out of a desire to play and perform chamber music. Our first project, to form a wind quintet, was realised with musicians from local orchestras, Reading Symphony Orchestra and the Aldworth Philharmonic.

Based in Earley, Reading, the Whiteknights Ensemble takes its name from Whiteknights Park, the manorial land of the De Erleigh family, now the campus of the University of Reading.

We are delighted to have supported Rosie’s Rainbow Fund in our first concert.

All proceeds from this event have been sent to local charity, Rosie’s Rainbow Fund, which supports sick and disabled children through art and music therapy. We are very proud to have raised over £650 for this excellent cause, and thank our amazing audience for their generosity.
