Cor8 - horn octet

Cor8 is a London-based, all-female French Horn octet of alumni and postgraduates of British conservatoires. Formed in Spring 2018, the ensemble brings together musicians originally from England, Ireland and Bulgaria with the aim of performing a blend of both well-known repertoire and new commissions. Cor8 have performed at Saffron Hall, Ely Cathedral, Milton Court, West Road Concert Hall, Kennington Park, St Peter’s by the Waterfront and were featured performers and workshop leaders at the British Horn Festival 2019.

Cor8’s members have performed with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, the orchestra of the Royal Opera House, the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, English National Opera, Welsh National Opera, Garsington Opera, as well as under the batons of renowned conductors such as Marin Alsop, Jessica Cottis, Bernard Haitink and Sir Mark Elder.  During the global pandemic, Cor8 launched ‘Cor8 Horn Club’, a monthly club on Zoom bringing together horn players of all abilities and from all around the world, each session with a different theme involving bespoke arrangements to play along online, performance opportunities, breakout groups and games. More recently the ensemble have performed as part of the Cambridge Summer Music Festival.

The ensemble’s name is a play on the term “quorate”; which is synonymous with diplomacy and equality - qualities that sit at the heart of the ethos of the ensemble.
