These concepts define the essence of Fonema Consort, as we endeavor to bring to light and expand the repertoire of 20th and 21st century works for voice(s) and instruments; and live out our fascination with the exploration of vocal possibilities in music. The complex nature of this repertoire encompasses a vast intersection of disciplines including music, drama, and literature; and requires the ensemble to explore a wide range of performance practices.
Believing that new music offers a journey of discovery for the performer and listener alike, Fonema Consort strives to bring musician, music, and listener into closest proximity. Above all, we hope that our audience will join us on this journey at the edge of musical and linguistic discovery. Learn more.
