About NOW Ensemble:

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.

NOW Ensemble has brought some of the most exciting composers of their generation to national and international recognition. In recent seasons, they have performed at Lincoln Center, the Apples and Olives Festival in Zurich, Switzerland, Town Hall Seattle, Da Camera Houston, and in Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series. From 2016-2018 they were the inaugural ensemble in residence at San Diego’s Art of Élan.

Highlights of the 2018-19 season include a major collaboration with Sarasota Contemporary Dance, premieres of new works by composers Sean Friar and Michi Wiancko, and the recording of NOW Ensemble's sixth album, due out by New Amsterdam Records in 2020. Collaborations and partnerships in 2018-19 include residencies at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge, Lawrence University, Ripon College, and Antenna Cloud Farm.

One of NOW Ensemble's main goals has been to create a musical paradigm in which continuous collaboration between composers and the performers is taken as a given. This philosophy has been put into practice in residencies at numerous institutions including Yale, Princeton, University of Virginia, and the New College of Florida. NOW Ensemble's performances have been featured on NPR's “All Things Considered” and live on WNYC, and its sophomore album “Awake” charted at #1 in Amazon's Classical Chamber Music Charts. “Plan of the City,” NOW's collaboration with filmmaker Joshua Frankel and composer Judd Greenstein, was praised in the Washington Post as “one of the best matches of visuals to music I’ve seen.”

NOW Ensemble is: bassist Logan Coale, electric guitarist Mark Dancigers, clarinetist Alicia Lee, pianist Michael Mizrahi, and flutist Alex Sopp.Learn more about NOW Ensemble here:
