Face the Music

The only youth ensemble in the U.S. dedicated to the creation and performance of music by living composers, the more than 200 member Face the Music has taken its place as a full-fledged player in New York City’s vibrant contemporary classical scene. Ensemble in residence at Kaufman Music Center and directed by Dr. Jenny Undercofler, the teen new music ensemble performs at diverse venues throughout the city and beyond, including Merkin Concert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, BAMcafé, Queens Museum, Roulette, and WNYC’s The Greene Space. Face the Music is the only youth group among the Legacy Partners for Kronos Quartet's exciting new commissioning initiative "Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire."  The recipient of the 2011 ASCAP Aaron Copland Award, Face the Music has been featured in Chamber Music Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily News and on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
