“…the new gold standard for new-music…” – The New Yorker

Called “extraordinary” by The New York Times and “America’s foremost new-music group” by Alex Ross, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is one of the most exciting ensembles working today. For Ovations audiences only, ICE brings an evening of music drawn from Ashley Fure’s The Force of Things: An Opera for Objects, interspersed with works by Maine-born composer Suzanne Farrin. Uniquely staged and featuring an eclectic array of instruments – including voice, bassoon, piano, cello, percussion, and the ondes Martenot, an early electronic instrument – the program explores an otherworldly ecological progression through an immersive audience experience.
