Comp Cord Ensemble
Comp Cord Ensemble is the resident ensemble of Composers Concordance. The ensemble is a mixed chamber band made up of composers/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, David Soldier - violin, John Clark - horn, Valerie Coleman - flute, Taka Kigawa - piano, Chanda Rule - voice, and Franz Hackl - trumpet, 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.
