The Stanford New Ensemble is Stanford University’s resident ensemble that focuses on music written after 1900, as well as premiering works by faculty and student composers. The ensemble is mainly comprised of Stanford students who are selected by audition, faculty members, and occasionally guest artists.
Under the direction of violinist, Joo-Mee Lee, the ensemble has performed in various unconventional public locations on the Stanford campus in order to reach out to a broader audience without formality. An article describing this new approach was featured in the Stanford Report on Jan. 21, 2016 (http://news.stanford.edu/2016/01/21/new-ensemble-lee-012116/).
The Stanford New Ensemble is part of Orchestral Studies in the Department of Music, and is sponsored in part by Stanford Arts.
