fresh inc festival and 5HE Performances

If you've been following 5HE folks recently, you probably know that we're gearing up for the first year of our fresh inc festival, a two week summer music festival in which young musicians and composers will collaborate with members of Fifth House Ensemble to create and perform new music.  We are extremely excited to give you multiple opportunities to experience this collaboration live! At each performance, fresh inc participants will join Fifth House Ensemble members to create ensembles of all shapes, sizes, and sounds.  Each performance's program will be different, but they will all include standard repertoire, as well as highlight new works by Stacy Garrop, David Rakowski, and the participants themselves!  See the performance schedule below, or find it here on the fresh inc festival website to learn when you can catch fresh inc and Fifth House Ensemble in person!
