Ensemble Connect

Weill Recital Hall
Exciting Baroque music from Venice and a new Venetian-inspired work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw commissioned by Carnegie Hall are performed by Ensemble Connect. As part of La Serenissima, Carnegie Hall’s festival of music and arts from the Venetian Republic, the ensemble performs the vibrant music of Monteverdi (arr. Berio) and Marcello. Virtuosity and versatility have been constants of Ensemble Connect (formerly Ensemble ACJW), from the debut of the first group of performing fellows 10 years ago, to the thrilling performances of the current ensemble.
