"...progressive-minded players...looking to dispense with some rules."
"...delightfully devious....remarkably arresting...
Their musicianship was immaculate from start to finish."
The Tenth Intervention Ensemble is a contemporary classical chamber group with a flexible roster of players. The Tenth Intervention Ensemble is recognized for presenting bold and progressive series of concerts exploring the intersection of music, dance, performance art, visual art, and their potential to reflect social issues. It is our intention to foster a meaningful experience through new music.
The Tenth Intervention Ensemble has presented works with inventive instrumentation such as solo piano and bondage artist (Nathan Hall's Tame Your Man) and amplified string quartet with electronics and folk instruments (Aleksandra Vrebalov's …hold me neighbor, in the storm…).
Some of these pieces have been written especially for The Tenth Intervention Ensemble, including a world premiere by Eric Lyon, Scott Rubin, and Tenth Intervention co-founder/artistic director Dorian Wallace. Performances have also featured world premiere original choreography by Jennifer McQuiston Lott, Alison Cook Beatty, Kim Neal Nofsinger, and Michael Spencer Philips.
With each performance The Tenth Intervention Ensemble strives give audiences an experience through which they can appreciate chamber music and classical music in a new, and sometimes unexpected way.
