HOUSE MUSIC | METROPOLIS ENSEMBLE
Metropolis Ensemble’s series, House Music, reflects its values of putting community at the heart of its practice, and allows it to continue to create opportunities for artists to do what they do best: make and share new music. All artists are being paid for their work. Metropolis Ensemble is commissioning performers to present bite-sized works from contemporary composers, as well as composers to create new works specifically for this series, which are then recorded from wherever the artists are sheltering. “House Music” launched in late March and streams live every Tuesday and Thursday.
