ensemble dal niente
Ensemble Dal Niente is a Chicago-based contemporary music ensemble dedicated to the promotion and advancement of contemporary music through concerts, commissions and educational activities. Through innovative programming, Dal Niente explores the wealth and diversity of music composed in the past century — from the European avant-garde, to American high modernism, to styles influenced by popular music and jazz. The ensemble presents the best of music being written today by established, emerging, and as-yet-undiscovered composers. It commissions new works, gives countless premieres, and champions great but neglected compositions — all in addition to regularly performing contemporary and 20th century masterpieces to bring this exceptional music to audiences.
