NOW Ensemble - February 14, 2018
This performance will be held in the Louis Armstrong Theater rather than Cook-DeWitt Center.
NOW Ensemble is a dynamic group of performers and composers dedicated to making new chamber music for the 21st century. With a unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, and piano, the ensemble brings a fresh sound and a new perspective to the classical tradition, infused with the musical influences that reflect the diverse backgrounds of its members. Having recently celebrated ten years together as an ensemble, they have brought some of the most exciting composers of their generation to national and international recognition. In recent seasons, NOW has performed at the Apples and Olives Festival in Zurich, Switzerland, Town Hall Seattle, Da Camera Houston, Lincoln Center, and the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert series. Highlights of the 2017-18 season include premieres of new works by composers Andres Martin and Sean Friar, and the release of NOW Ensemble's fifth album Rounder Songs, put out by New Amsterdam Records.
