New Music Detroit
New Music Detroit is an incredible ensemble comprised of top talents from the professional, classic music ranks. Calling themselves a “musical collective, more than a formal ensemble,” New Music Detroit’s primary members are
Vicky Chow, piano
Gina DiBello, violin
Ian Ding, percussion
Una O’Riordan, cello
Shannon Orme, clarinets
Erik Rönmark, saxophones
Each a virtuosic musician, the artists are active soloists and members of leading symphonies, including the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the cultural and academic worlds. Specializing in chamber works from the late 20th century to the present day, New Music Detroit was honored as a Kresge Arts Fellow in 2014.
New Music Detroit has been hailed as the flagship new music ensemble in the region. The ensemble regularly draws upon super-talented guest artists from in and around Detroit and Southeast Michigan, as well as the broader new music community. The group has developed a loyal following of young fans. Along with other leading Detroit-area performing arts and cultural organizations, they have produced and performed “Strange, Beautiful Music,” now an annual tradition at Orchestra Hall, drawing hundreds of young new/contemporary music fans every year.
