ELMO exists to create quality, innovative and accessible live music involving all communities making the best in live music available to all.
How did ELMO start?
"Quality live music is life enhancing and should be available to everyone"
ELMO is interested in making quality live music for the people – we work with a range of musicians (for instance by combining opera with pop singers) and actively cast our performers from diverse community backgrounds. We aim to reach people who often lack access to quality live performances including inside prison.
