I'm looking forward to joining Renegade Ensemble next Friday in a concert celebrating 10 years of new music in the Twin Cities! I was a regular member of this group for three years, and looking forward to this special concert.
Launching the 2013-14 season, RenegadeEnsemble’s “Poppies in October” features a rich selection of new chamber music from living composers both local and international. The event showcases dramatic floral imagery and an outpouring of virtuosic intensity.

This past weekend, Renegade Ensemble had our first ever ReneGALA, a gallery show/performance featuring works from this past season's Visual Artist Collaboration Series. We had a different visual artist come on stage with us during each concert series and create a new piece of art while we performed! The paintings were sold in an auction during the exhibit, along with some of the artist's other work. The ensemble performed a few highlights from the past season, as well as a few preview performances for next season!
Proceeds from the event will provide funding for our 2013-2014 season. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased HERE.
Can't make it to the gala but still want to support our 2013 season? Donations can be made through our GiveMN page HERE and thank you!
