Brave New Works

Brave New Works is a vibrant performing ensemble of ten musicians
dedicated to performing and promoting new music.  The mission of Brave
New Works is to engage, enrich and educate through contemporary music.
A not-for-profit organization since 2003, Brave New Works was nurtured
by the rich artistic landscape of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and formed in
1997 by three students at the University of Michigan: percussionists
Chris Froh and Eli Shapiro, and conductor Chris Younghoon Kim.  The
concept was simple: to make great music, discover new sounds and ideas,
and perform with kindred spirits.  The musicians of Brave New Works have
performed all over the world and have collaborated with some of the most
influential composers of the 20th and 21st centuries including Luciano
Berio, Elliott Carter, William Bolcom, Leslie Bassett, and George Crumb.
Brave New Works has commissioned and premiered numerous works for its
unique instrumentation of string quartet, piano, flute, harp, clarinet,
and soprano. The Art of the Fugue Project of 2002 marked Brave New
Works' most ambitious commissioning project, soliciting composers from
around the United States and Europe for scores conceived in response to
Bach's towering masterpiece.  Brave New Works has served its educational
mission through several college and university residencies around the
country, including stays at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon,
the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and an ongoing
relationship with Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.  In October
2003 Brave New Works served as Ensemble in Residence at the New Music
and Art Festival at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green,
Ohio.  Today, many of the musicians of Brave New Works hold teaching
positions at prestigious colleges and universities around the country,
and all maintain individual performing careers.  Brave New Works strives
to uphold the values out of which it was formed and remains true to its
first simple concept: to make great music, discover new sounds and ideas,
and perform with kindred spirits.

Best,
Chris Younghoon Kim
artistic director of Brave New Works
