Austin’s Inversion Ensemble is a choral collective made up of composers and singers formed to give voice to innovative choral works and to encourage the creation of new music. A great deal of our repertoire is written especially for Inversion Ensemble by composers who sing within the ranks of the ensemble. While many members of Inversion Ensemble perform, conduct, compose, study, and teach music full-time, the group also includes non-professional participants who are passionate about choral music and help to ensure it thrives as a modern art form.
