About Us

Kaleidoscope Orchestra is a musical collective intent on bridging the gap between musical genres. Drum n bass, dance, trance, grime and dubstep as you’ve never heard it before: Kaleidoscope uses classical instruments to play non-classical music in new and unexpected ways.

Set up in 2011, Kaleidoscope was the brainchild of two Manchester University graduates, Steve Pycroft and David Tagg-Oram. The orchestra comprises a mix of young music professionals based mainly in Manchester and London.

After a viral hit with their Skrillex Orchestral Suite (arranged and orchestrated by Steve Pycroft), Kaleidoscope quickly gained notoriety on YouTube, racking up hundreds of thousands of hits on their orchestral suites. These include reinterpretations of music by Flux Pavilion, Major Lazer, Pendulum, Etherwood and Netsky, all endorsed by the artists themselves. Due to the success of these videos Kaleidoscope has worked with some influential brands and artists such as Cream, Gatecrasher, Flux Pavilion, and Dr Meaker.

Outside of the studio, Kaleidoscope has performed live at some top venues, having been on the bill at several sell-out nights at Sheffield City Hall, Liverpool Cathedral, Manchester Academy, The Ritz, The Roof Gardens Kensington and SoundControl.
