The Extension Ensemble has quickly established itself as a fresh force in the New York chamber music scene. They were founded at The Juilliard School over four years ago, and perform a wide variety of contemporary music. The group also strives to expand audiences’ awareness of and appreciation for contemporary brass music by incorporating improvisation and extended techniques into its programs.

The Extension Ensemble has won first prize at both the Fischoff and Monterey Bay international chamber music competitions, as well as the New York Brass Conference Quintet Competition.
