Brightwork newmusic

Brightwork newmusic is the only organization in Southern California with a performing ensemble, monthly concert series and educational initiatives all focused through the lens of contemporary classical music. Our monthly concert series, Tuesdays @ Monk Space, presents cutting edge works by both established and emerging artists in a funky former speakeasy near downtown LA.

Brightwork Ensemble is a sextet of Grammy winning and nominated musicians who are fluent in many musical styles and who perform and record actively across Southern California and beyond. The ensemble is a favorite of composers: they have been engaged for hundreds of world premieres and premiere recordings.  They are also frequently presented by local venues and series to bring their unique blend of exquisite artistry, innovative programming, and sense of fun.  Project Beacon is our educational arm, bringing Brightwork Ensemble to sit in residence at colleges, universities, youth orchestras, and community music programs to mentor the next generation of musical artists. Project Beacon also includes the High School Composer Initiative, our signature effort to increase diversity and remove historical barriers to achievement for the next generation of composers.
