The Ensemble Located at 1 Anthony Road near educational institutes, commercial buildings and many residential homes, The Ensemble is a mixed-used space with a music centre and café. The music centre consists of a retail store selling string instruments and pianos on the first level, together with the café, while the usage of rented facilities take place on a more private second level. The Ensemble serves as a platform to encourage involvement in musical activities and also allows the public and surrounding users to dine at the café.
