About Us

Blackbox Ensemble at Spectrum, December 7, 2019

The Blackbox Ensemble is flexible-instrumentation contemporary music ensemble dedicated producing performances that engage with the urgent social issues of our time.

We at the Blackbox Ensemble believe that contemporary music can and must be a platform for critical inquiry, social action, and community building. The curatorial mission behind every Blackbox program is to explore, from different angles, how music can adequately engage and intervene in contemporary social and cultural discourses. In doing so, we are committed to presenting a broad array of work by the diverse artistic voices of our time.
