Album Notes
Durward is a chamber ensemble that promotes the diversity of contemporary music to a broad audience through performances of rarely performed works and commissioning new works by living composers. Committed to formal concert presentations and educational outreach programs, Durward engages audiences of all ages and artistic interests in experiences that celebrate creativity and develop a community-based commitment to new music.

Commissioning new works is a large part of what we do. We have commissioned and premiered nine new works to date with seven more commissions and premieres scheduled for the sping of 2019. The ensemble will premiere these seven new works at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

We are an ensemble that consist of the following instrumentation: flute, two clarinets, saxophone, trumpet, tenor trombone, bass trombone, piano, percussion, violin, viola, and cello. If you would like to write for that specific instrumentation or something similar please contact us. For more information look us up on the internet for webpage details.
