Red Oak Contemporary Ensemble

New Music Gathering

We had a wonderful time meeting everyone at the New Music Gathering in Baltimore this past weekend. Though we did not perform, our Artistic Director - Michael Sperone - spoke on a panel entitled "Building New New Music Communities." Along with emerging and established groups in Martha's Vineyard, San Diego, Sarasota, Colorado, we discussed what it takes to start a new community based around our new music where little or no new music exists. Michael shared some of our strategies for finding performers, money, and an audience for our music.

2016 Season

We are in the works of planning our second season. Following last seasons music of young emerging composers, we wish to present a season of established masterpieces of the 20th century. The details are still to be arranged, but we are excited to be able to announce it soon!
