COMMISSIONING FUND FOR NEW MUSIC
Help us grow the repertoire for
women and treble vocal ensembles
When Quince Ensemble formed in 2009, we struggled to find enough music for our 4-woman ensemble fill an entire program. Determined to put down roots in the chamber music world, we immediately began commissioning and building our own repertoire from the ground up, repertoire that is empowering, surprising, and relevant. This repertoire is steadily making its way into the standard repertoire for vocal chamber music and inspiring the next generation of composers and singers.
It has been thrilling to watch the music we've commissioned grow beyond our ensemble, from workshops with the University of Toledo and Connecticut College Choirs, side-by-side performances with students at the Walden School and Omaha Area High Schools, to performances by professional ensembles throughout the world.
And our most ambitious projects are still taking root. We’re celebrating our 10th season by raising $10,000 and launching our official Quince Blossoms Commissioning Fund for New Music. This fund will be an ongoing "seed fund" that will increase our impact and create an enduring legacy in the vocal music lineage.
Your gift is the start of something big to come!
