Balance Campaign is a D.C. based contemporary ensemble passionate about commissioning and premiering new works. Currently in their 2nd season, the group has been in residence at University of Maryland-Baltimore and is currently ensemble-in-residence with District New Music Coalition. With DNMC, they will perform works by local, living composers on a series of concerts in the D.C. metro area to facilitate a connection between audiences, musicians, institutions, and composers within the community.
Currently collaborating with Fordham University professor, composer, and Maryland-native, Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis, the ensemble is premiering a new composition in Fall 2019 at Fordham University during their Northeast Tour. They are also working closely with Virginia-based composer, Dr. Lexi Bryant-Tavani, on a commission to be premiered in Fall 2020.
In addition, the 2018-2019 season includes a return to University of Maryland - Baltimore with an all-female program and debut performance of two student compositions. Other season highlights include their appearance on “Off the Beaten Path Music Series” at University of District of Columbia, showcasing works by international and immigrant composers. They will also be performing Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, Op. 21 on the “In the Stacks Series” at George Peabody Library in Baltimore, MD.
