ASCAP Waves Hello to Wavefield Ensemble
November 6, 2018
The world of contemporary music has just welcomed into its ranks a new and formidable performance force: the collectively organized group known as Wavefield Ensemble. With a healthy dose of ASCAP composers found among its 20+ members (including Co-Artistic Director Nicholas DeMaison), and likewise among the composers granted a berth on the first-season roster, Wavefield gave their very first concert on November 3 at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City.
For the remainder of their 2018-19 season, Wavefield Ensemble will maintain a residency at MANA Contemporary, and will also spread its wings at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Further concerts throughout the course of their first full season are slated for National Sawdust, EMPAC and The Park Avenue Armory. Especially noteworthy will be a collaboration in March with legendary composer, saxophonist and 2018 ASCAP Founders Award recipient, Roscoe Mitchell.
