Our current ensemble consists of a dynamic instrumentation of harp, flute, and percussion by performers Erin Brooker, Jennifer Shanahan, and Andy Miller respectively. As an ensemble, we seek to explore a diverse range of classical, contemporary, and folk music in new and unique performance settings as well as generate new works through collaborating with living composers, artists, and dancers.
