Umbrella Ensemble Music by the SeaThe Umbrella Ensemble is a reed trio founded by emerging Canadian musicians oboist Catherine Lee, clarinetist Louise Campbell and bassoonist Alexandra Eastley.

The ensemble grew from the three members desire to establish a creative ‘umbrella’ under which they could explore mutual artistic interests. The Umbrella Ensembles shared interest in colour and blend results in diverse programs that demonstrate the wind trio in all its possibilities.

The Umbrella Ensemble features guest bassoonist Helena Kopchick Spenser for the Music by the Sea Festival.
