Face the Music, Kaufman Center's "alt-classical" youth ensemble, performs student composer Joe Jordan's Cumulonimbus at  Merkin Concert Hall as part of Kaufman Center's Chamber Fest.

The only student ensemble in New York City dedicated to performing music by living classical composers, Face the Music has been praised by the New York Times for its “stunning performances” of music by contemporary composers and hailed by critics as “polished, exuberant” (New York Times) and one of “New York’s favorite contemporary-classical ensembles” (Time Out New York). Since its founding in 2005, the ensemble has taken its place as a full-fledged player in New York City’s vibrant contemporary classical scene, rapidly becoming what Allan Kozinn of the New York Times has called “a force in the New York new-music world.”
