REDSHIFT is an ensemble of young, dynamic musicians with a commitment to performing contemporary music in distinctive venues. Based in New York and San Francisco, REDSHIFT’s core members draw on vast experience performing all types of classical music--from the traditional to wildly experimental. Their recent performances have been described as “a knockout” (San Francisco Classical Voice).
Performances by REDSHIFT defy many of the urban myths associated with classical music, and especially contemporary music: that it is difficult to understand, that it is not cool or fun, and that it can only be appreciated by concert hall connoisseurs. REDSHIFT presents its innovative programs with a casual style and artistic intensity that invites audiences into a visceral and intellectual experience.
REDSHIFT’s mission is to promote the experience of live contemporary classical music through virtuosic performances in interesting venues, to foster appreciation for the music’s artistic value, and to perform music that represents composers from a range of styles and career stages.
