yMusic is a sextet of young performers who overlap classical and pop music worlds. Hailed by NPR‘s Fred Child as “one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music,” the group plays a unique combination of instruments: string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet. This orchestration has inspired an expanding repertoire of works by some of today’s most important artists including indie rock luminaries Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), who have crafted instrumental works specifically for the ensemble. yMusic’s debut album, Beautiful Mechanical, was recently named Time Out New York‘s #1 Classical Record of 2011.

yMusic also serves as a ready-made collaborative unit for bands and songwriters, launching projects with Dirty Projectors, Gabriel Kahane, and Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire. These affiliations have brought yMusic to prominent stages around the world. yMusic can be heard on a forthcoming record of compositions by Richard Reed Parry.
