About ensemble mise-en
Examining unusual corners of the composition world” (New York Times), ensemble mise-en “offers something fresh for your ears” (Time Out New York) with a repertoire that is simultaneously multicultural, intellectually challenging, and aesthetically pleasing.
Though a wide array of projects, including concert series, tours, and workshops, mise-en engages artists and audiences in a vast and growing body of contemporary music. The ensemble’s annual music festival has gained international recognition, drawing from more than 3,400 works submitted by composers since 2014.
Since its founding in 2011, ensemble mise-en has presented a total of 350 pieces, including 150 works written for the group and 64 U.S. premieres. The ensemble has also performed at exciting venues such as (le) poisson rouge, Bohemian National Hall, Italian Academy, the DiMenna Center, Tenri Cultural Institute, and the cell, and premiered works by Jarrell, Abrahamsen, Hosokawa, Mitterer, Pagh-Paan, and Saariaho, among others. Recent tours have taken the ensemble to parts of the American Midwest and New England, as well as to European countries including Sweden, Lithuania, and Latvia.
