YMusic Residency, day 2
Venues: Rooms of the Music Building
Residency Day 2: Entrepreneurship and composition discussions
yMusic is a chamber sextet that works in close quarters with contemporary composers and songwriters, developing ideas into vivid, communicative performances. Since the group’s instrumentation was inspired by friendship and musical admiration rather than pragmatism, yMusic only performs works and arrangements created specifically for the ensemble. Collaborating with some of the most visible and creative pop artists of their time yMusic inspires die-hard Classical Music fandom from often uninitiated audiences via their virtuosity in both concert and pop idioms. In the classical concert sphere, yMusic has served as muse to some of the most dynamic thinkers of their generation, including Nico Muhly, Andrew Norman, Chris Thile, Caroline Shaw, Marcos Balter, and Bill T. Jones
