Brave New Works 2007 Boston Conservatory Residency

October 18, 2007 Ann Arbor, MI

Brave New Works is a vibrant chamber ensemble of ten musicians dedicated to performing and promoting new music. The mission of Brave New Works is to engage, enrich and educate through contemporary music. Started by graduate students at the University of Michigan eleven years ago, Brave New Works has evolved into a professional touring ensemble with residencies that span the coasts. Working with established composers such as William Bolcolm, Bernard Rands, Marilyn Shrude and Bright Sheng and championing the music of the newest voices in the field through a college residency program, Brave New Works has been hailed as one of the finest new music groups in this country. Awarded an Aaron Copland grant for recording, the ensemble will be releasing its first cd, Quintets: Albright-Bolcom, in spring of 2008. The musicians of Brave New Works serve on the faculties of prestigious colleges and universities around the country including Cornell University, the University of Michigan, Bowling Green State University, and the University of Puget Sound, and are in demand as soloists, chamber musicians, and orchestral performers.

Brave New Works will be in Boston for a residency at the Boston Conservatory November 13-18 and will perform "Short Stories" by Braxton Blake (Boston premiere), "Indigenous Instruments" by Steve Mackey, "Slide Stride" by Mark-Anthony Turnage, and "Compline" by Christopher Rouse.
