For nearly two decades, SOLI Chamber Ensemble has upheld its reputation for giving new voice to 20th and 21st century classical contemporary music and for its strong commitment to commissioning new works. Known for breathing life into the music of living composers, SOLI has twice been voted Best Chamber Ensemble by The San Antonio Current and continues to mesmerize audiences with its cutting edge performances.
SOLI strives to break down the stereotypes linked with classical music. Devoted to high quality performances, SOLI Chamber Ensemble works to bring classical contemporary music alive for listeners who may be unfamiliar with this music. Founded in 1994, SOLI annually presents a season of innovative programs in a variety of venues, from Trinity Universitys Ruth Taylor Recital Hall, to Blue Star Contemporary Art Center in South Town, to Gallery Nord, a gallery space in north San Antonio. Performing in unusual and intimate spaces allows the audiences to get up close and creates a user-friendly approach to the music. Audiences enjoy the unstuffy nature of SOLIs performances and the informal ambience of these unusual venues.
