Who we are

The Horizon Ensemble is a community orchestra based in Boston. Founded in June 2021, we present concerts in the historic Church of the Covenant in Back Bay. We perform music by friends alongside the music of history. Each of our concerts features at least one piece by a young living composer, presented alongside musical gems of history. Come join us in an upcoming concert!

Julian Gau

Hello! I'm Julian Gau, and I'm proud to serve as the music director of the Horizon Ensemble. As an organization, we create connections between composers, performers, and audiences with an emphasis on creativity and community. I am lucky to act as conductor for this wonderful group, and sometimes as composer and pianist, too!
