Black Sheep Contemporary Ensemble focuses on collaboration and is dedicated to performing music by living or recently deceased composers throughout the Greater Boston Area for a variety of audiences. The ensemble accomplishes this through our Four Core Goals: Perform, Collaborate, Commission, Educate.
Perform music written by living or recently deceased composers that has already been performed or premiered. We seek to give repeat performances of these pieces to promote them and to provide the composers with performances opportunities for work of unusual instrumentation
Collaborate with other musicians, as well as artists in other disciplines. We wish to create works and performances that allow artists to experiment in mediums that they might otherwise not be able to or used to working in.
Commission new pieces by composers to premier and perform in order to create more repertoire for unusual and contemporary instrumentations.
Educate the community and our audiences about new music. We aim to expand out audience base past the typical contemporary-classical concert goer by educating others about what we do, why it is important, and how they can become involved.
