This year's Tribeca New Music Festival opens with one of the most important new groups in NYC, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), performing works from an exciting generation of emerging composers who are making their mark on today’s new music scene. In 2004 the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) was founded and is led by cellist Clarice Jensen. The group is dedicated to the outstanding performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries in programs that are both avant-garde and archetypal.  Ms. Jensen will work with violinists Miranda Cuckson and Benjamin Russell, along with violist Nadia Sirota and flutist Kelli Kathman.

On the program:
"Dust Shelter" - Trio for Flute, Viola and Cello by Ryan Streber
Down to Earth (for solo cello) by Caleb Burhans
Stride (for string quartet) by Nico Muhly
String Quartet No. 3 by Jefferson Friedman
