About the Ensemble

The Constantinides New Music Ensemble (CNME) seeks to meet the demands of the 21st century artist, by engaging in new projects that adapt to multiple musical styles and find new ways to connect in the community through traditional and non-traditional venues. The group consists of highly skilled and flexible musicians who work regularly with faculty and guest artists, including applied and academic faculty, composers, and conductors. The CNME explores multiple types of projects, including readings of student and faculty compositions, community engagement, multidisciplinary works (theatre, dance, visual arts), guest artist residencies, and other related ventures.
