As founder of London Electronic Orchestra, Kate Simko has intricately fused her background as a classical pianist with her passion for electronic music.  An inimitable blend of lush strings weaving in-and-out of synths and loose grooved beats, the LEO brings classical music’s ornate instruments back to the forefront.  In 2014, Kate completed a masters degree in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music, where she formed the LEO.  Since then the group has created a buzz with appearances at the National Gallery, iTunes Festival at the Roundhouse, LEAF festival, Latitude Festival, HEART Ibiza, and Bestival.

"Fresh, exciting, contemporary yet, of course, classical - it is something which could no doubt be translated into concert halls across the country and the world. It is a project that has the power to bring together typically disparate audiences; the world of club-goers and those who love classical music."
