Ruston Ropac performs with the contemporary vocal ensemble Ekmeles in this concert.
“Ekmeles is a vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new and rarely-heard works, and gems of the historical avant garde. New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles. The New Yorker calls them a "brilliant young ensemble... defining a fresh and virtuosic American sound."
On March 9, 2018, Ekmeles will perform new works by ICEBERG composers Stephanie Ann Boyd, Victor Baez, Derek Cooper, Max Grafe, and Jonathan Russ. Also on the program is a work by one of the winners of ICEBERG'S third annual call for scores. Like every ICEBERG event, this concert features an open bar happy hour beginning at 7:30, and a discussion with the composers and performers after the show.“
