Contemporary Ensemble

The University of Alabama Contemporary Ensemble is committed to performing the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, including masterworks by established composers, music by emerging composers, and the music of the University of Alabama student and faculty composers.

Striving to present this body of art at an exceptionally high level, the ensemble aims to endow student performers with a strong foundation of knowledge for this canon of musical literature, to enlarge the audience for contemporary art music, and to generate new opportunities for its performance. The ensemble is dedicated to encouraging and nurturing the music and careers of the composers and performers of today.

Students interested in participating in the Contemporary Ensemble are encouraged to contact Dr. Amir Zaheri, musical director and conductor.
