The Firebird Ensemble
December 5, 2009
Firebird Ensemble, directed by violist Kate Vincent, has been described as "ambitious and eclectic" by the New York Times and is fast gaining a reputation as being one of the premier new music ensembles in the United States. Known for its highly varied contemporary repertoire, virtuosic performances and wide audience appeal, Firebird Ensemble's repertoire spans a time period from the mid 1900's to the present day and includes music originating from diverse sources and genres. Musically defined by eclectic programming with interdisciplinary influences, Firebird Ensemble aims to break down preconceptions about new music, to build enthusiasm for new compositions, and to create a unique concert atmosphere.
