The University of Southern Maine Composers Ensemble has been giving exciting concerts of new music for nearly eight years. The ensemble consists of undergraduate and graduate performers, and performer-composers, and writes an entire evening's worth of music each semester. In the Fall 2012 semester, the ensemble swelled to 30 people - a chamber orchestra with choir. For the first time, we decided to commit these fine pieces, and this fine ensemble, to posterity via recording sessions held after the end-of-semester concert. Given the strength of the results, this will likely become a tradition, and you the listener may look forward to subsequent E.P.s in the years to come!
