As Jimmy Page once wrote, “My vocation is more in composition really than anything else.” On Sunday, November 10th at 8pm, Composers Concordance (“enterprising new music organization” -NYTimes) and The Cutting Room present Comp Cord Ensemble, a mixed chamber band made up of composer/performers. The four core members are: Milica Paranosic – voice and keys, Gene Pritsker – guitar, Dan Cooper – bass, and Peter Jarvis – percussion. The group is augmented by other composers and performers for each individual project. Acclaimed musicians who have joined the band include: Robert Dick – flute, Dave Soldier – violin, John Clark – horn, Valerie Coleman – flute, Taka Kigawa – piano, Chanda Rule – voice, Franz Hackl – trumpet, and Kinan Azmeh – clarinet, among others.

Composers Concordance is a presenting organization for contemporary music with a 29-year-history of producing concerts in New York City. It strives to present music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. The Comp Cord Ensemble expands on this objective by focusing on the composer-as-performer within an ensemble setting. Each project asks the selected musicians to contribute compositions based on a particular subject or instrumentation, with an emphasis on experimentation and creating music for the particular members of each program. In recent years, the ensemble, in its various forms, has performed at The American Museum of Natural History, Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, Shapeshifter Lab, and Turtle Bay Music school, among others. Since 2010, it has been the resident ensemble at William Paterson University.
