The QUIET CITY CHAMBER ENSEMBLE was founded in 2010 to record the world premiere of Aaron Copland’s Quiet City in its original instrumentation using the unpublished manuscript of the incidental music, which included material that had languished in obscurity for over 70 years. The recording Quiet City (Sono Luminus, June 2011) received significant national radio play as well as interviews on PERFORMANCE TODAY and NPR: WEEKEND EDITION. The ensemble has gone on to perform publicly using repertoire from the CD and encouraging composers to write for this unique and wonderful instrumentation. In their 2014-2015 season they present music by Grammy winning composer Carlos Franzetti, Peter Cody, and winners from their first "Call for Scores".
