Ensemble for These Times logo

Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) brings new, nearly new, forbidden, and forgotten music to light. We focus on 20th and 21st century music that is relevant, engaging, original and compelling—that resonates today and will speak to tomorrow—and we strongly believe in the power of artistic beauty, intelligence, wit, lyricism, and irony to create a deep understanding of our times and the human condition. E4TT's debut CD Surviving: Women's Words was released on Centaur Recording was reviewed as "fascinating," "...four passionate meditations on the Holocaust experience delivered through a unique and highly compelling pair of voices, those of both composer and singer." Congratulations to the winners of our 2016 CALL FOR SCORES: Thank you all for sharing your artistry and talent with us!
