The UVA Clarinet Ensemble is comprised of clarinetist from 1st to 3rd year who love the clarinet. The ensemble plays a diverse range or repertoire including arrangements and original compositions.

The New Music Ensemble is a unique group of musicians who play various selections of organized improvisational works. As a group, they create music based on specific rules, timing, and signals. The result is that no two performances of the same work are exactly alike. Instead, new music is played every time. Join this exciting ensemble as they premiere several original compositions, including one piece composed by the entire ensemble. Enjoy the mystery and musicality of this exciting group.


For this concert, the following new music pieces will be played: “Natural Order” by Greg Howard, “Early Music” by Heather Mease, “Ritual of Subtle Transmogrification of Collective” by Calder Hannan, “Jatyantara-parinamah” by Christopher Luna-Mega, and a special piece composed by the entire ensemble, “Untitled Collaborative Piece.”
