creating the future of contemporary music

Dinosaur Annex Music Ensemble is a leading presenter of chamber music of our time. The ensemble commissions, performs and records cutting-edge works from around the globe. Since its founding in 1975, the group has given hundreds of premieres, and its innovative repertoire embraces a wide range of music by celebrated modern masters as well as emerging composers. Members of the ensemble perform regularly with Boston’s finest musical organizations, including The Boston Symphony, The Boston Pops, The Boston Ballet, and The Handel + Haydn Society. The musicians work collectively with Co-Artistic Directors Yu-Hui Chang and Sue-Ellen Hershman-Tcherepnin to present first-quality, trailblazing concerts.
