Led by trumpeter and pianist Brandon Ridenour, this ensemble plays exquisite Bach and Handel, shows off with Scheherazade, and makes Brubeck meet Mozart in a jazzy twist that will delight and surprise. Described as "a mashup between Punch Brothers and Kronos Quartet," Founders is a songwriting collective comprised of New York City's most dynamic classical musicians. Their pieces range from Appalachian Folk originals, to Radiohead covers, to art songs using famous poetry, to the classics of Bach and Bartok. Brandon was the youngest member to ever join the Canadian Brass at age 20, and has appeared as a soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestras among others. These musicians will end the chamber season with classical creativity.
