American Modern Ensemble is marking its 10th anniversary in 2014-2015 as we joyfully celebrate and showcase American music, performing the widest possible repertoire, particularly by living composers. AME is proud of our audience base that is far and wide, beyond the immediate new music community. AME always includes on-stage chats with featured composers, presents premieres, and conducts three annual competitions for young, emerging and professional composers. Winners all get a premiere performance in New York City with recording, videography, and cash prizes. Every concert enables audience members to mingle with both composers and performers in an intimate, fun, and relaxed setting. Founded in New York City in 2005 by Robert Paterson and Victoria Paterson, AME is a dynamic, creative force in the modern music scene. With a world-class ensemble made up of NYC's finest musicians, AME is "simply 'first-rate" (The New York Times). AME has performed over 150 living composers in venues ranging from Lincoln Center to The Roulette, and has "consistently demonstrated a flair for inventive programming" (Steve Smith, Time Out New York). AME programs both cutting edge and traditional works, presenting unique, engaging events that encourage dialogue between artists and audiences. Over 90% of the composers whose works have been programmed attend our concerts. Sold out crowds at Merkin Hall, Dimenna Center, the Rubin Museum, The TimesCenter and many other venues are a winning testament to AME's tremendous fan base and ever expanding popularity. AME was the ensemble-in-residence at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City, and AME tours and offers educational outreach programs. Recent collaborations include the Prototype Opera Festival, the Dance Theater of Harlem, and Talujon percussion ensemble. Recent university performances and educational master classes include Lafayette College, James Madison University, and Princeton University. AME presents thematic programs using a robust combination of instrumentalists and vocalists: flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, percussion, piano, violins, violas, violoncellos, bass, vocalists, and conductor.
