Christopher Stark’s Fire Ecologies commission has been made possible by the Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program, with generous funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The commission of No Plexus is made possible through support of the Performing Arts Fund NL.

Unheard-of’s 2021-22 season is partially supported Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University.

Ford Fourqurean (clarinet), Matheus Souza (violin), Issei Herr (cello), and Daniel Anastasio (piano) form the core of Unheard-of//Ensemble, a contemporary chamber ensemble dedicated to connecting communities across the United States through the development and performance of new music. Unheard-of is committed to the idea that new music belongs in every community, and implements this mission by performing in locations out of the reach of many new music organizations.

As both performers and educators, the ensemble mentors and collaborates with students, not only focusing on performance, but also the entrepreneurial aspects of being a professional musician in the 21st century. In this vein, Unheard-of has guest lectured across the United States as well as part of a Manhattan School of Music Distance Learning event speaking with students from the Sibelius Academy. Unheard-of presents their Collaborative Composition Initiative workshop for composers each summer.
