For the first time in more than two decades, Radius Ensemble will not be in the concert hall with you, our beloved audience. Instead, we will be sharing the experience of live music with you in other ways. We will gather virtually, so that we can all remain safe until the coronavirus pandemic is resolved. 

This fall, we will bring you three live concerts of intriguing solo repertoire, performed live from our musicians’ homes. Each event will feature our signature mix of old and new, with guest composers and the occasional cohabiting guest performer, too! 

We have also planned a series of stimulating conversations with three of our favorite composers whose work we’ve recently commissioned. Each event will feature an encore performance of the work they wrote for us, broadcast in its entirety and followed by a Q&A with the composer.

All virtual events begin at 8pm and are FREE with an optional suggested donation.
