Kaleidoscope is an innovative collaboration between four creative young artists. The group's approach is built on the distinct creative personalities of its members, with engaging programmes putting classical and contemporary music alongside electronics and visuals. Trained at top UK conservatoires including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Northern College of Music, the quartet's work has led to multiple awards and high profile performances at venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room and Bridgewater Hall.

The quartet's lineup features an array of artistic skills, from award-winning soloists and multi-instrumentalists to innovative composers of music ranging from classical to electronic. The quartet is committed to the creation and performance of new music, and has commissioned and premiered works from numerous talented young composers including Michael Cryne (LSO Panufnik Young Composer) and Oliver Leith, whose new commission A Day at the Spa won a British Composer Award in 2016 and has been played on Radio 3. The group are also passionate about education and outreach work, and perform across the country through their work on the Live Music Now scheme and with organisations such as Enterprise Music Scotland and the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

Since 2014 the group have been City Music Foundation Artists, with the foundation supporting development of the quartet's debut CD along with a Help Musicians Emerging Excellence award. The group also made their Wigmore Hall debut as recipients of a Musicians' Company Maisie Lewis Foundation award, and a first appearance at the Purcell Room under the Park Lane Group banner, with the concert given a four-star review in The Times. In 2015 the group's work was supported by the Tunnell Trust and the Hattori Foundation, and included tours, London performances and a Bridgewater Hall debut. 2015 also saw the recording of their debut album with producer John Harle, featuring music by Gavin Bryars, Jonny Greenwood and Steve Martland as well as brilliant new pieces by Oliver Leith, Jenni Watson and John Rittipo-Moore. In 2016 the group released its debut album Oil to great acclaim, alongside a busy schedule involving festivals across the UK and in Europe.
