Ascend

New Voices - Unique Spaces

ascend's mission is to engage local artists and audiences in the creation and expression of new music in Cincinnati. Their concerts are unique in that each composer shares their thoughts on their music with the audience. ascend also engages the audience by teaching them a compositional technique and having them experiment it with the singers. ascend hosts two concert series; focus and fusion. The focus series consists of solo vocal recitals of new music in unique spaces. The fusion series features an ensemble of eight singers who offer new works with different artists such as rappers, bands and, in the future, chefs and movie makers. 

 
The 2014 concert at St. John's Unitarian will be a part of our fusion series and is entitled "redux and remix". ascend will be premiering two new reductions of orchestral music and will be remixing those with a rapper and band.
