Back to the Timeline ULYSSES Ensemble


06/2022 Ircam – FR

The ULYSSES Ensemble and the ULYSSES Network took a step forward in 2017, focusing their efforts on young performers – as always, in the field of today’s music. Every year, a new ensemble of young musicians living in Europe is formed and travels to several academies and festivals in the ULYSSES network.

2022 marks the first time that the ULYSSES Ensemble is an ensemble entirely dedicated to percussion, and travels from June to September from the ManiFeste Academy to the Time of Music Festival to the Gaudeamus Festival ending with the Warsaw Autumn Festival.

The ULYSSES Ensemble is made up of 5 percussionists, accompanied by percussionists from the Percussions de Strasbourg who lead and guide the young performers throughout their journey. The members of the ensemble are Paolo Amendoeira, Théo Guimbard, Seon Yeon Kong, Mikolaj Rytowski and Akane Tominaga.
