Mission Statement

Radius Ensemble, now in its fourteenth season, has earned rave reviews and a dedicated following by reinvigorating classical music for a new generation. A chamber music ensemble of winds, strings, and piano, Radius performs music from the classical period to the modern era, from beloved masterpieces to undiscovered gems. Its musicians are outstanding professionals inspired by tradition, willing to take risks, and committed to connecting with a diverse group of listeners.

Description

Founded in 1999 by oboist and impresario Jennifer Montbach, Radius’s season includes a four-concert series at the Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, where the group was named Ensemble in Residence in 2011. Radius has also appeared on concert series throughout New England, including the Rockport Chamber Music Festival and New York’s Music in Chelsea. Radius has commissioned and premiered numerous works by Boston-area composers and has won several Meet the Composer grants from the National Endowment for the Arts/New England Foundation for the Arts. Committed to community outreach, Radius presents a free Saturday-morning family concert in Harvard Square, and a distributes free tickets to disadvantaged children and their parents or mentors through local community service agencies. Radius Ensemble’s podcast, distributed on iTunes, brings its dynamic live performances to listeners throughout the world.

Seven core members comprise Radius Ensemble. They are joined by additional musicians as repertoire warrants, including (but not limited to) viola, bassoon, harp, percussion, and double bass. The group has also collaborated with a thereminist, several narrators, and dancers; and has appeared with film, live and recorded electronics, and other multimedia.
