newEar, now in its 20th Season, is a professional music ensemble featuring the music of today's composers. newEar's music can be difficult to classify because composers write in ALL styles -- from a traditional piano trio to a work for solo instrument and electronics. newEar concerts often feature a visual or cross-cultural element that blurs the boundaries of classical, rock, jazz, world music and the avant-garde. Other artistic disciplines are often part of newEar performances -- you may see dance, visual arts or theatre in the mix. We invite you to attend a newEar concert! You will see and hear a handful of highly trained musicians interpreting music, most written within the last 10 years—and frequently performed in public for the very first time EVER. newEar's concerts may be challenging to categorize: they are truly on the eclectic and cutting-edge creative trends of the 21st century.
