This was one of my favorite ensembles while at the University of Miami – The Avant Garde Ensemble. Such an amazing group of talented players. And everyone brought so much energy into learning each other’s music. Ronnie Miller was the teacher and he had a great way of giving direction while bringing out everyone’s uniqueness. I wrote this suite for this ensemble specifically. They made it cooler than what it was on the score for sure.
