Wild Rumpus Receives Commissioning Grant
We are thrilled to announce that Wild Rumpus has received a Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning grant to support a new work by artistic director Dan VanHassel! The piece will be a song cycle for soprano, flute, trombone, violin, double bass, electric guitar, percussion, and piano, with text by Bay Area songwriter Jesse Rimler. We'll premiere the cycle in 2016, so stay tuned for news as the piece progresses!
This year, CMA's Classical Commissioning program awarded $198,100 to twelve ensembles, and we're honored by the company we're keeping. For the full list of awardees, please visit Chamber Music America.
