ABOUT

We are 6 classically trained guitarists, and the question we asked ourselves when we formed CRAS Ensemble was...

   HOW CAN THE MUSIC OF TOMORROW INTERACT WITH THE WORLD OF TODAY?

That was in 2017, and since then we have presented a string of projects that explore the intersection between contemporary music, people, society, global events and political and historical themes.

Collaboration is at the core of what we do, and we work continuously with composers from all over the world in order to expand the repertoire for 6 guitars.
 

Also, our different projects have given us the opportunity to work with people from other areas of expertise... handstands, fine dining, nuclear policy, digital bullying, puppeteering, film

and litterature. To name a few.

 

Above all we like to collaborate with you - the audience -  in order to keep the music alive
and relevant.

CRAS is the latin word for tomorrow, and in the spirit of a truly modern ensemble,
we perform the music of tomorrow today.
