Wavefield

New York, NY            

Wavefield Ensemble is a collectively organized group of musicians dedicated to performing music and creating new artistic work at the highest level, and to actively engaging in educational activities geared toward inspiring the next generation of artists and performers. We aim to collaborate with like minded artists, performers, and thinkers of all stripes, and to offer a platform for all whose work demands it. Our goal is to share this work as broadly as possible and in so doing to inspire those we contact to a more deeply creative engagement with the world.

Our collective experience is enormous: from creating and performing all sorts of music in venues around the world, to running other artistic organizations, to sharing our craft with those who aspire to make their own work, to commissioning and developing new work. We are musicians and artists, we are people working together to make our world better by sharing our work.
