The Other Music Ensemble is an auditioned ensemble featuring some of the best student performers at the Frost School of Music. They perform cutting edge concert music by 20 and 21st century composers.
The “Other Music Ensemble” was established to provide a contemporary ensemble performance resource for composition students at the Frost School of Music, as well as granting an opportunity for interested instrumentalists to gain experience rehearsing and performing truly “new” music. The ensemble is varied in its makeup, and changes every semester. Its primary function is to perform recent compositions by student composers.
It is also a very active ensemble performing at the Festival Miami’s Emerging Composer’s concert, student composition recitals as well as a regular series of “Music at Twilight” concerts held at dusk several times throughout the year.
Known for its aesthetic diversity and openness to the wide variety of options existing in the ever-changing and progressive world of composition, the Composition Program at the Frost School of Music has a long tradition of distinguished faculty, alumni and students.
