Mobius Trio has, since its inception in 2010, made its name as one of the Bay Area’s best and hottest young ensembles. Mobius Trio’s mission is to use the most popular, ubiquitous instrument in the world — the guitar — to create a new lexicon of music; one that freely combines the varied influences of musicians who grew up with unfettered access to the world’s entire musical library.  To accomplish this, they collaborate with composers and other musicians to commission pieces that reflect this beautiful musical schizophrenia:  “classical,” punk, bebop, metal, folk, hardcore, and many other genres form the DNA of this music, in which the walls between genres cease to exist and old dichotomies start to unravel.  Are they a band or an ensemble?  One minute, they are premiering a new classical guitar trio by Brazilian guitar legend Sergio Assad, the next they’re using electric guitars to create a droning wave of feedback in Nick Vasallo’s Dark Matter.

The Trio exclusively performs music that they have commissioned, and they commission some of the music world’s most interesting composers.  They seek to expand the guitar ensemble’s repertoire to encompass all of the myriad currents passing through “contemporary art music,” whatever that means.  Mobius Trio has commissioned over two dozen composers in their first three years of existence, and that pace isn’t slowing.  Recent premieres include pieces by Samuel Adams, Belinda Reynolds, and Nick Vasallo, and the Trio looks forward to many, many upcoming collaborations with composers like Aaron Gervais, Ryan Brown, and Ian Dicke.  Performance residencies with the trio frequently include workshops on the process of performer/composer collaboration.

Since recording commissioned works is an integral part of expanding and disseminating an ensemble’s repertoire, Mobius Trio’s debut album, Last Light, features all of the aforementioned commissions and more.  The album was produced by Sergio Assad and Marc Teicholz and released in November 2012.  Mobius has also toured widely with this new repertoire, performing at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Center for New Music, Old First Concert Series, the Hot Air Music Festival, as part of the Guitar Foundation of America Symposium, and more.  Mobius appeared as featured alumni on NPR’s “From the Top” Radio Program in May 2013, opened for the Kronos Quartet at Z Space in February 2014, and have a featured concert performance at the upcoming Guitar Foundation of America Festival and Competition in June.

The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in the country. Under the leadership of Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, Litton-Lodal Music Director, the American Boychoir has dazzled audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, spirited presentation, and ensemble virtuosity. The Boychoir performs regularly with world-class orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and is often featured with such illustrious conductors as James Levine, Charles Dutoit, and Alan Gilbert. The American Boychoir is frequently invited to join internationally-renowned artists on stage, and the list of collaborators reflects the extraordinary range of the ensemble: from great classical artists such as Jessye Norman and Frederica von Stade to jazz legend Wynton Marsalis and pop icons Beyoncé and Sir Paul McCartney. The choir's young soloists are also in high demand and have joined forces with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, and Spoleto Festival USA, to name a few. As an icon of American musical excellence, the Boychoir has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S. President since John F. Kennedy. Touring frequently at home and abroad as preeminent ambassadors, the American Boychoir spreads messages of beauty and hope through outstanding musical achievement.

Boys in fourth through eighth grades, reflecting the ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the United States, come from across the country and around the world to pursue a rigorous musical and academic curriculum at the American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey. While keeping up with their academic demands, the boys balance schoolwork with an intense national and international touring schedule. In addition to the almost 100 solo concerts, the 2015-2016 season includes four national tours, continued international releases of the movie "Boychoir" with Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, and members of the American Boychoir, performances of Mahler's Symphony 8 with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and engagements at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The legacy of the American Boychoir is preserved through an extensive recording catalog, which boasts over 45 commercial recordings and the launch of its own label, Albemarle Records.

The Akropolis Reed Quintet takes listeners on extraordinary musical adventures, performing an innovative repertoire with acclaimed precision. Founded in 2009 at the University of Michigan and the first ever reed quintet to win the Fischoff Gold Medal in 2014, Akropolis took Grand Prize at the MTNA and Plowman chamber music competitions consecutively in 2011, and has garnered prizes at three additional national competitions. Championing the next generation of maverick musicians, Akropolis is also winner of the 2015 Fischoff Educator Award, delivering impactful outreach at schools ranging from kindergarten to conservatory. Akropolis has released two studio albums to critical acclaim and commissioned more than 25 reed quintet works to date. Their dynamic concerts feature accessible contemporary works framed by invigorating arrangements of classical music spanning four centuries.  

Akropolis has been a resident ensemble at major festivals around the country and abroad, including Summerwinds in Münster, Germany as well as the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings and Juneau Jazz and Classics. Akropolis opens its 2015-16 season at Chamber Music Northwest, premiering the first work for reed quintet and string quartet by David Schiff with the eminent Dover Quartet, and collaborating with the BodyVox Dance Company to perform selections with choreography. Akropolis has also appeared at numerous colleges and universities to perform and conduct master classes on commission collaboration, the business of chamber music, and chamber music performance.

Akropolis has commissioned more than 25 adventurous new works from composers around the world, including the United States, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Turkey, Israel, Argentina, and Serbia. Each collaboration involves a unique commissioning project, including High Speed Reed and Unraveled, which comprise Akropolis' first two full-length albums. Their newest project, The Space Between Us, commissioned four American composers to create works describing the space within music’s aesthetic and social constructs. As part of the project, John Steinmetz created “Sorrow and Celebration”, the first work for reed quintet and audience participation.
