THE SYNDICATE FOR THE NEW ARTS is excited to present a program of new music in their Summer 2017 Rust Belt Tour. Through their recent Call for Scores, the Syndicate has created connections with composers, collaborators, and friends. Of these new connections, they have worked closely with six amazing composers this summer to develop works specifically for the ensemble.

The Syndicate is a modular chamber ensemble that is reimagining contemporary music through creative concert presentation, educational engagement, and a focus on building relationships with composers and audience members. As the ensemble in residence at the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ohio City, the Syndicate’s team works closely with local artists and hosts visiting artists for performances, workshops, and other collaborations. Additionally, the Syndicate performs at art galleries and clubs, and runs a series of creative music workshops with the Cleveland Public Library.
