MSU Federal Credit Union Showcase Series
NOW Ensemble is a dynamic group of instrumentalists featuring flute, clarinet, electric guitar, piano, and bass. A core part of NOW Ensemble’s mission has been collaborative work with emerging composers around the world. This concert will feature the world premiere of their most recent collaboration with Michigan-based composer and MSU College of Music alumnus Griffin Candey. The piece focuses on the quiet nostalgia for small hometowns and the way they shape us as people. Candey aims to explore this relationship and how he has navigated it throughout his upbringing in Michigan.
Members include Erin Lesser, flute; Yoonah Kim, clarinet; Mark Dancigers, electric guitar; Lizzie Burns, bass; and Michael Mizrahi, piano.
NOW Ensemble is a guest artist of the MSU Federal Credit Union Entrepreneurial Musical Artist in Residence Program.
