Cali Immersive Residency with Decoda
Composition Practicum / Readings
During this two hour session, members of Decoda will talk about their experiences with commissioning and working with some of today's top composers around the world and play their favorite new works. With a focus on woodwinds, the Cali Composers will have the chance to share and hear their most recent compositions performed by the Decoda Wind Quintet.
Decoda was founded in 2012 by musicians who first collaborated as members of Ensemble Connect, a two-year fellowship program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Institute in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. Its work as an ensemble has grown out of this collective training, which focused on developing skills as exemplary performers, dedicated teachers, and passionate advocates for music in communities around the world.
Decoda’s versatile musicians are equally committed to virtuosic performance and audience engagement. Its flexible instrumentation, from trios to large mixed ensemble, allows for unique, inspiring and engaging concert experiences for a vast array of audiences, from concert halls to schools, hospitals, and correctional facilities. As alumni of Ensemble Connect and in recognition of its members’ ongoing success as artists, educators, and advocates for music, Decoda is the only independent ensemble to be recognized as an affiliate ensemble of Carnegie Hall. Our virtuosic musicians perform creative chamber music programs for curious audiences. Drawing from a dynamic continuum of styles, eras, and instrumentations, we seek to create inspiring musical experiences for all.
