International Contemporary Ensemble at Bing Concert Hall January 21 2016


"...every 'icicle,' as its members are affectionately called, possesses the requisite killer instinct to tackle virtuosic new music."
–New York Times

Celebrate the 80th birthday of Steve Reich—one of the 20th century's most iconic composers—with ICE at Bing Concert Hall. Highlights from the ensemble's visit will include a new work by Reich and a world premiere from Stanford faculty composer Mark Applebaum. Experience a truly unique performance by an ensemble the New Yorker calls "the new gold standard for new music."
