THE RESONANCE COLLECTIVE
The Resonance Collective is a group of NYC-based strings players with a diverse range of expertise who have joined forces to merge new classical music with chamber jazz. With a line-up that ranges from a string quartet to a jazz orchestra, its members are Grammy-nominated musical omnivores who have performed in major venues throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, such as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and The Library of Congress, Wiener Musikverein, alongside talents such as Steve Reich, Maria Schneider, Paquito D’Rivera, Brad Mehldau, Chris Thile, Bjork, Kurt Elling, Esperanza Spalding, and Yo Yo Ma.
The musicians of Resonance Collective bring their wealth of experience as jazz artists, new music champions, vocalists, fiddlers, and composers to a unified mission of more clearly defining and innovating the genre of contemporary chamber jazz. Through live performances, recordings, and commissions from composers and arrangers, they passionately aim to bring this under-appreciated genre to wider recognition.

One of the leading contemporary music groups in New York, the ensemble has championed new music from Adams to Zorn, and has commissioned over 100 works from both emerging and established composers such as David Del Tredici and Glenn Branca.
