Now celebrating its 42nd season, Collage New Music was founded by percussionist Frank Epstein, who served as Music Director until 1991, when he passed the musical leadership to frequent guest conductor David Hoose. Today, Mr. Epstein continues to perform with the ensemble and serves as the president of the board of trustees. Praised by the Boston Musical Intelligencer as “among the finest artists of contemporary (or any other) music,” the ensemble comprises some of the most experienced and exciting instrumentalists skilled in the intricacies, virtuosity and emotional depth of new music, including musicians from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, highly respected musicians from Boston’s freelance community, and musicians from New York and beyond. Guest artists who have appeared with Collage represent a who’s who among some of the most deeply communicative artists, including Seiji Ozawa, Gunther Schuller, Milton Babbitt, Clark Terry, Vanessa Redgrave, Walter van Dyck, Janna Baty, Janet Brown, William Hite, Elizabeth Keusch, and Judith Bettina.
