Balance Campaign is a Washington, D.C.-based contemporary classical ensemble dedicated to commissioning and performing new works by underrepresented women, LGBTQ+, and minority composers, as well as composers with connections to the DC area.
As the District New Music Coalition’s 2019 Ensemble-in-Residence, Balance Campaign forged connections with audiences and musicians by performing a series of concerts featuring the work of living composers in the D.C. metro area. In summer 2019, Balance Campaign was awarded a residency at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute, where they collaborated with composer Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis on their new commission, ANIMAL, which premiered October 2019 at Fordham University during their Northeast ‘DESTRUCTION’ Tour. They are also currently working with Minnesota-based composer Alexandra Bryant on a commission to be premiered in Fall 2021.
Admission is free.
