FIU Music Festival: New York’s Continuum Ensemble
November 5 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $5 - $15
“Simply put, there is no musical organization in New York that produces more intellectually enticing or more viscerally satisfying programs than Continuum… Year after year, its explorations in 20th-century repertory prove to be not only unusual and unexpected but also important and enduring… This ensemble has a long history of acting in behalf of composers whom others discover years or decades later.” – The New York Times
New York’s internationally-acclaimed new music ensemble, Continuum Ensemble, makes its debut at the FIU School of Music!
Winner of the prestigious Siemens international prize for distinguished service to music and four ASCAP/Chamber Music America awards for adventuresome programming, CONTINUUM, directed by Cheryl Seltzer and Joel Sachs was founded in New York in 1966. Its name embodies the philosophy that new music and old form an unbroken tradition. Aiming to introduce new music with a global reach, CONTINUUM has performed throughout the United States, including appearances at the Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, at colleges and community series throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, and in some thirty-six tours to Europe, Asia, and Latin America. In recent seasons the ensemble has played in Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, the Republic of Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Korea, Luxembourg, the Republic of Georgia, Mongolia, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. CONTINUUM recordings appear on Naxos, Bridge, New Albion, Nonesuch, Advance, Capstone, CRI, Cambria, TNC, and Musical Heritage Society labels.
