Circles and Lines Composers and Cadillac Moon Ensemble Awarded MetLife Creative Connections Grant

Circles and Lines and Cadillac Moon have been awarded the MetLife Creative Connections grant for the spring season!  We are looking forward to working with this fantastic ensemble !

About Cadillac Moon Ensemble:

That is the virtue Cadillac Moon Ensemble brings to new music: for all their effortless accuracy, they imbue their material with humanity.” (The Examiner)

About our new CD Atlas: “An auspicious collection of new compositions by contemporary composers that combines the fun and wit of rock and film music with the intensity and challenging sonics that have come to define the best of the New York indie classical scene.” (Lucid Culture)

Cadillac Moon Ensemble has commissioned and premiered over fifty works from talented, emerging composers. The group’s first full CD was released on the New Dynamic Records label in September 2012, and a release of Zack Browning’s music on Innova Records was released earlier this year. The group was recently featured on John Shaefer’s New Sounds program on WNYC. Described as a “commission-crazed young group” (Time Out NY) “with excellent ensemble awareness and phrasing” (The Examiner), other 2011-2012 season highlights included: a residency at Indiana University Southeast, collaborations with Blind Ear Music and Random Access Music, Rutgers University graduate composers, and seventeen commissions. This season will include performances in Portland, Maine, Baltimore, and New York, with upcoming premieres by Caleb Burhans, Osnat Netser, Alex Weiser, Nicholas Deyoe, Rick Burkhardt, and Daniel Felsenfeld.

Recent commissions include works by Angélica Negrón, David Claman, Amy Beth Kirsten, Zack Browning and Anna Mikhailova. CME has also received funding from the American Composers Forum’s Encore Program to perform Shawn Allison’s composition, Towards the Flame. Cadillac Moon Ensemble has performed on Kathleen Supové’s Music With a View series, the Trinity Church Wall Street Concerts at One, the Vox Novus Composer’s Voice series, and at multiple clubs, museums, churches, and universities. The quartet has also collaborated with Ethos Percussion Group, TRANSIT, Sospiro Winds, and Iktus Percussion.

With its unique combination of flute, violin, cello, and percussion, Cadillac Moon Ensemble is dedicated to retaining the intimacy and artistry of traditional chamber music, while expanding its palette of sonic possibilities. The group was formed in 2007 and is focused on commissioning new works and developing integral relationships with emerging composers, inspiring and challenging them to write for this new combination. The group strives to strongly connect with audiences, and communicate new repertoire through varied, diverse programming.
