“It’s difficult to imagine any group giving a better performance than that of the Eco Ensemble.”

Singing Trees (Requiem for Toru Takemitsu)
Praised by the New York Times as a “dream team of local musicians who embody a high point in the Bay Area’s vibrant contemporary music scene,” UC Berkeley’s stellar ensemble-in-residence specializes in precise and passionate performances of works by living composers. The group is directed by new-music champion and music department faculty member David Milnes and is comprised of talented performers from across the region. This season’s Cal Performances concert will showcase the music of Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa, who will be a guest of the music department in February 2021 as the distinguished Bloch Lecturer. The program features the UC Berkeley Chamber Chorus, led by Wei Cheng, and acclaimed koto player Kyoko Kawamura. “It’s difficult to imagine any group giving a better performance than that of the Eco Ensemble” (San Francisco Classical Voice).
