Kaufman Music Center

Face the Music & ICE at the Ecstatic Music Festival

Saturday, January 26  |  7:30pm


Face the Music, Kaufman Center's "alt-classical" youth ensemble, performs Geroge Lewis's Artificial Life with the world-renowned International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) at  Merkin Concert Hall as part of the 2013 Ecstatic Music Festival.

This concert will be streamed live on New York Public Radio's Q2 Music and broadcast on WNYC.

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.”
