ABOUT THE ORCHESTRA

The symphony orchestra Plenum was founded in the summer 2016, by a group of young Copenhagen-based musicians, who enjoy playing symphonic music together.

However, it is also very important for us to have a social orchestra and to get to know each other. We don’t just come to rehearse – we also have a lot of fun.

At the moment we are playing a more classical repertoire, but we are also open to more modern pieces and maybe film music.

We currently have a bit more than 30 members, and we are still recruiting new musicians. We especially need strings (violins, violas, celli and double basses), an oboe, french horns, trombones and percussion.

French conductor Nathanaël Iselin is a multifaceted musician. He recently moved to Copenhagen to study conducting at the Royal Danish Academy of Music under the guidance of maestros Michael Schønwandt and Giordano Bellincampi.

After a solid education in Piano and Accompaniment, Nathanaël was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris where he studied Percussion, Music Theory and Orchestra Conducting.
Nathanaël conducted various orchestras in Europe, such as the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Kammerphilharmonie Graz, Paris Conservatoire’s Laureates Orchestra, and Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester. He also recently conducted a full opera production at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. He has been the musical director of Limoges University Orchestra, as well as Plenum and Accenture symphony orchestras.

As a percussionnist, he played with various orchestras, such as the Ensemble Intercontemporain/CNSMDP, Limoges Opera Orchestra, the French Youth Orchestra, and toured in Europe (Paris Philharmonie, Montreux Stravinsky Auditorium, Konzerthaus Freiburg…) and in Asia (Shanghai Symphony Hall…).

Nathanaël also had the chance to study with conductors such as Mariss Jansons and Jorma Panula, and played with David Zinman and Matthias Pintscher.
