Engaging diverse communities with string ensemble music through the performance of our innovative arrangements, education, and outreach.

About Sphere Ensemble

Sphere Ensemble was formed in 2011 by professional string players driven to explore the vast potential of the string ensemble repertory.  Moving beyond the stereotype of classical music tradition, Sphere’s programs include both masterpieces of string orchestra repertoire and exceptional works drawn from all genres to create a new definition of modern performance.  Innovative arrangements are written by group members generating a unique and transformative musical experience.  Sphere’s debut album, Divergence, was named one of Colorado Public Radio’s Top 20 classical album releases of 2015.  

Since 2018, Sphere Ensemble has new leadership and vision with Executive Director Alex Vittal, longtime viola player and arranger in the group.  Alex has continued to expand the reach of Sphere Ensemble in Front Range communities by bringing performances and educational programming to marginalized audiences including Title I schools and communities, homeless shelters, juvenile detention centers, women’s shelters, children’s hospitals, and assisted living and memory care facilities.  
He is joined by Alejandro Gómez Guillén, a highly acclaimed violinist and conductor, as Artistic Director.  Alejandro focuses on the collaborative process of music-making and brings a dynamic and passionate presence to Sphere Ensemble.
