Brave New Works is a vibrant chamber 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. Started
by students at the University of Michigan eleven years ago, Brave New
Works has turned into a non-profit touring ensemble with residencies
that span the coasts. Working with established composers such as William
Bolcolm, Bernard Rands, Marilyn Shrude and Bright Sheng and championing
the music of the newest voices in the field through a college residency
program, Brave New Works has been hailed as one of the finest new music
groups in this country. Awarded an Aaron Copland grant for recording,
the ensemble will be premiering their first cd of chamber music by William
Bolcom and William Albright in fall of 2008.
