Sunday June 14 - Dan Joseph Ensemble at Barbés Brooklyn


The Dan Joseph Ensemble was founded by New York-based composer Dan Joseph as a vehicle for his growing body of post-minimal experimental compositions. With a unique instrumentation anchored by hammer dulcimer and harpsichord, a mix of winds, strings and percussion, the ensemble sound is harmonically rich and deeply resonant, evoking a musical world both old and new; ancient and modern.

The ensemble's core members include Tom Chiu (violin), Loren Dempster (cello), Marija Ilic (harpsichord), Danny Tunick (percussion) and the composer on hammer dulcimer and conducting. Joining the group throughout it's history include clarinetists Michael Lowenstern, Katie Porter, Meighan Stoops, Matt Ingalls, Daniel Goode, JD Parran and Anthony Burr, flutists Leah Paul and Amelia Lukas, harpists Shelley Burgon and Bridget Kibbey, harpsichordists Jed Distler and Aya Hamada, and guitarist Gyan Riley.
