Amalgama is a New York City-based ensemble dedicated to the synthesis of improvisation and notated contemporary classical music. We reinvent the traditional roles of classical concert music in order to create thought-provoking, accessible concert experiences that incorporate interdisciplinary performance and composer-performer collaboration. Each of Amalgama’s seven core members is both a performer and a creator, forging new space in the interstices of these activities. Amalgama was an invited curator at Mise-En_Place and collaborated with Reiko Füting, Whitney George, and Viola Yip.
