  • Abrons Arts Center 466 Grand Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Two of ICE's newest members are already establishing themselves as leading advocates of their instruments. Alice Teyssier's extraordinary talent overflows as both and expert vocalist as well as one of the top flutists of her generation. Ryan Muncy has commissioned and premiered many important works for saxophone, an underrepresented instrument in contemporary music. Together, joined by trumpeter Peter Evans, they present a program of diverse and short works that open new realms of sonic styles and poetic meaning.
