Discover why ICEensemble artists chose their instrument or why their instrument chose them. Inspired by the Collecting Composers series collaboration between NYPL and the International Contemporary Ensemble, Collecting Performers will bring the audience into the performers' practice and mind.

"In our fourth year of programming at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, we are expanding the story to represent the already porous boundaries between composers and performers. Our Collecting Composers Series will now include a Collecting Performers series wherein the artists of ICEensemble can tell the story of their relationship to their instrument through a piece of new music that deeply influenced their craft."

- Ross Karre, co-artistic director


Alice Teyssier, flute and voice
