Exceptional Musicians

Unforgettable Experiences


We are experience focused and love sharing exceptional musicians in refreshingly simple and honest ways. We are curious about what classical music means to us today, we’re always exploring the best way to share our stories as emerging musicians. We are innovators inspired by classical music’s history, but not stifled by it.

We’ve reimagined how classical music and opera can be enjoyed and are putting that into action through our monthly Concert Series, DEBUT at the Shoreditch Treehouse - AirBnb’s No. 1 Classical Music Experience in the World (and with some exciting new ideas in the pipeline!). We’re also available for hire and provide these brilliant Opera Singers, Instrumentalists and West End performers for Special Occasions and Private and Corporate Events.

One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to! Top class singers and musicians, beautiful flat, super friendly hosts and magical atmosphere!

Impeccably organised and beautifully sung.

An unforgettable evening.

Our story

It all started in 2015. The year after soprano Lizzie Holmes graduated from the Royal College of Music, London. She realised there wasn't a platform that captured and celebrated the insanely talented graduates leaving Music Conservatoires - in the space between their training and having an international career. 

At the age of 25, Lizzie set up DEBUT to help give a voice to these brilliant rising stars. Since then DEBUT has developed two interconnected strands to our work:


Our Concerts bring a generation of classical musicians together: to share music with personality, humour and finesse with the classically curious and seasoned opera goers alike - See what's coming up.
