In 2006, our tour to Krakow, Poland put the ‘international’ in International Contemporary Ensemble. This community remains dear to our heart, and so this Sunday we join Poland’s largest music publisher (PWM edition) and the Polish Cultural Institute in celebrating 100 years of Polish freedom. Steven Schick leads performances of works by five contemporary Polish composers: Agata Zubel, Paweł Mykietyn, Lidia Zielinska, Tadeusz Wielecki, and Aleksander Nowak. The celebratory culmination of the whole project will be 11 concerts in Poland and 11 concerts worldwide.

Portrait Concert: Du Yun

The 2017 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in Music for her opera Angel’s Bone, Du Yun is a multifaceted artist—composer, multi-instrumentalist, performance artist, and curator. On November 15, we celebrate foundational works created over the course of 20 years of collaboration and friendship. As Lara Pellegrinelli notes, “These works provided much of the ground from which [ICE] was launched, helping to transform a bunch of her fellow Oberlin graduates into the commissioners and collaborators who reshaped the entire new music scene.”

The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is an artist collective that is transforming the way music is created and experienced. As performer, curator, and educator, ICE explores how new music intersects with communities across the world. The ensemble’s 35 members are featured as soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners, and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time. Works by emerging composers have anchored ICE’s programming since its founding in 2001, and the group’s recordings and digital platforms highlight the many voices that weave music’s present.

A recipient of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE was also named the 2014 Musical America Ensemble of the Year. The group currently serves as artists-in-residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Mostly Mozart Festival, and previously led a five-year residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. ICE was featured at the Ojai Music Festival from 2015 to 2017, and at recent festivals abroad such as gmem-CNCM-marseille and Vértice at Cultura UNAM, Mexico City. Other performance stages have included the Park Avenue Armory, The Stone, ice floes at Greenland’s Diskotek Sessions, and boats on the Amazon River.

New initiatives include OpenICE, made possible with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which offers free concerts and related programming wherever ICE performs, and enables a working process with composers to unfold in public settings. DigitICE, a free online library of over 350 streaming videos, catalogues the ensemble’s performances. ICE’s First Page program is a commissioning consortium that fosters close collaborations between performers, composers, and listeners as new music is developed. EntICE, a side-by-side education program, places ICE musicians within youth orchestras as they premiere new commissioned works together; inaugural EntICE partners include Youth Orchestra Los Angeles and The People’s Music School in Chicago. Summer activities include Ensemble Evolution at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, in which young professionals perform with ICE and attend workshops on topics from interpretation to concert production. Yamaha Artist Services New York is the exclusive piano provider for ICE. Read more at iceorg.org.
