Fonema Consort Performs a World Premiere
Pre-concert Talk at 7pm and Performance at 7:30pm in the Main Gallery of Miami Beach Urban Studios
Fonema Consort was founded in October 2011 by singer Nina Dante and composers Pablo Chin and Edward Hamel. Named “Best New Vocal-Oriented Contemporary Classical Ensemble of 2014″ by The Chicago Reader, the ensemble has quickly earned a place in Chicago’s new music community, performing widely in Chicago venues and universities. Additionally, the ensemble is building a national and international audience with performances in New York, Costa Rica, and Mexico City and France. Fonema Consort is dedicated to the commissioning of new works for voice(s) with instruments, and collaborating closely with composers on the realization of these scores. Since its debut concert in February 2012, Fonema Consort has premiered more than 20 works by national and international, emerging and established composers.
Believing that new music offers a journey of discovery for the performer and listener alike, Fonema Consort hopes that our audience will join us on this journey at the edge of musical, linguistic and theatrical discovery.
