Help Ensemble 212 carry out its mission to propel the careers of young professional musicians!

What is Ensemble 212’s mission?
Our mission is to propel the careers of young professional musicians as they develop into the finest performing artists of their generation. By bringing outstanding musicians together to perform at the highest level, Ensemble 212 plays a crucial role in creating new opportunities for New York’s emerging instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers.

Since our inaugural concert, Ensemble 212 has established a proven track record of developing into one of New York’s finest young professional orchestras. We have performed nearly 60 concerts since our inception and our musical activities have grown consistently by adding more concerts, a Young Artist Competition series, and the Composer in Residence program.
