Guest Artist Series

UNCSA presents yMusic, "six contemporary classical polymaths who playfully overstep the boundaries of musical genres” (The New Yorker), in a concert featuring a range of contemporary and genre-bending works.

Founded in New York City in 2008, yMusic believes in presenting excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high-profile collaborators — from Paul Simon to Bill T. Jones to Ben Folds — and has inspired original works by some of today’s foremost composers, including Nico Muhly, Missy Mazzoli and Andrew Norman.
