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 to be 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.
