AMP ensemble is the performing arm of the non-profit Art Music Project, the organization also responsible for the Rattle the Walls fundraising series. AMP ensemble is a flexible instrumentation ensemble comprised of some of the most exciting and compelling performers of new music in and around Chicago today. Dedicated to music on the cutting edge, AMP concerts feature works by some of the most vibrant voices of our generation as well as iconic works of the modernist canon. AMP embraces experimentation and exploration. Come to an AMP concert to discover new music, new friends, and maybe even a new adventure!
The service-based program AMP will present at Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation on Mother’s Day, May 13th is titled “Mother Earth” and will feature works dedicated to the planet and its preservation. These works will range from an intimate setting for alto flute and guitar to experimental electronic work, to a beautiful piece of modernism that has at this point become almost classic! Come out to take this adventure around Mother Earth with us.
From Forrest Ransburg, Music Director at Tree of Life: “AMP ensemble is, I have to say, the project of mine whose future I am most excited about. The chemistry of the players and the magical nature of the rep we’re tackling is honestly the start of something great. We are still in our first season together, and I can’t wait to see where we will go!”
