UC Davis Music Department Taproot New Music Festival: Quince

Premieres of three new pieces by Taproot New Music Festival Participating Composers, written especially for Quince.

Singing with the precision and flexibility of modern chamber musicians, Quince Ensemble is changing the paradigm of contemporary vocal music. Described as “the Anonymous 4 of new music” by Opera News, Quince continually pushes the boundaries of vocal ensemble literature.

As dedicated advocates of new music, Quince regularly commissions new works, providing wider exposure for the music of living composers. They recently launched the Quince New Music Commissioning Fund, a fund to grow the repertoire for women and treble voices. Quince has released three studio albums, Realign the Time, Hushers, and Motherland, all available on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify, and Amazon.
