DETAILS

As a special addition to our mainstage season, 5BMF partners with the world renowned INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE‘s EntICE initiative and the South Bronx-based youth music organization UPBEAT NYC to present a showcase of new works performed by student musicians alongside members of ICE.

Introduced in 2015, EntICE unites leading composers with youth ensembles in new works to be performed side-by-side with members of the International Contemporary Ensemble. ICE’s musicians take young people – and their schools, families and communities – through the entire collaborative process of bringing premiere pieces to life.

In preparation for this performance, instrumentalists from the International Contemporary Ensemble will collaborate with young musicians from UpBeat’s free, community programs in the creation of an exciting concert of new works, presented under the auspices of 5BMF and the Pregones Theater’s March is Music series in the South Bronx.
