    TUTTI Festival Concert XI: The Vail Series presents NOW Ensemble
    TUTTI Festival Concert XI: The Vail Series presents NOW Ensemble

    The TUTTI Festival welcomes NOW Ensemble, in partnership with the Vail Series, and guest artists Augusta Read Thomas, Ching-chu Hu, HyeKyung Lee, Nicole Murphy, Dan Pinkston and Carl Schimmel.

    A dynamic group of performers and composers dedicated to making new chamber music for the 21st century, one of NOW Ensemble’s main goals has been to create a musical paradigm in which continuous collaboration between composers and the performers is taken as a given. What a perfect fit for a featured performer at Denison’s Tutti Festival! With a unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, and piano, the ensemble brings a fresh sound and a new perspective to the classical tradition, infused with the musical influences that reflect the diverse backgrounds of its members.

    Every two years, Denison University’s Department of Music collaborates with musicians, composers, fine artists, dance artists, theatre, and creative people across genres to present the TUTTI Festival, a days-long celebration of original works. This year’s festival takes place from Tuesday, Feb. 7 to Saturday, Feb. 11, and features composer Augusta Read Thomas; NOW Ensemble and artists-in-residence ETHEL; pianist Minju Choi and percussionist Ron Coulter.
