One of NOW Ensemble’s main goals has been to create a musical paradigm where there is continuous collaboration between composers and performers. NOW Ensemble’s performances have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and WNYC. Its sophomore album Awake charted first place in Amazon’s Classical Chamber Music Charts. NOW’s collaboration with filmmaker Joshua Frankel, Plan of the City, was praised in the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, and New Yorker critic Alex Ross’s blog, where it was hailed as “gorgeous.”
Since 2004, NOW has worked with over 60 of today’s most exciting composers, including Nico Muhly, Timothy Andres, Missy Mazzoli, Judd Greenstein, Kathryn Alexander, Jason Treuting, and Sean Friar. NOW has performed this new repertoire at venues such as Miller Theater, Merkin Hall, the Bang on a Can Marathon, The Kitchen NYC, The Stone, the Carlsbad Festival, the Festival International Chihuahua, the Look and Listen Festival, The Music Gallery Toronto, Sarasota’s New Music New College, the Southern Exposure Series, Pittsburgh’s Music on the Edge, Cal Arts, MIT, and Juilliard.
