About

N/A Ensemble is a six-member new music ensemble based in Toledo, Ohio, dedicated to performing new and experimental music. We strive to collaborate with composers to present newly composed music that pushes the boundaries of classical music and expands the horizons of our audience.

Our inaugural season has showcased 4 world premieres, a call for scores in collaboration with Compass New Music, and features on the ArtsX festival at Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo New Music Festival. Two-thirds of our repertoire was written after 2010; more than half were written by women.

In 2018-19, our ambitious project Cabaret N/A  will put theatricality front-and-center. Three composers with vastly different approaches to theater, physicality, and language have been commissioned  to write longform pieces drawing from the cabaret tradition. We are beyond excited about this music – stay tuned for more details.
