Zohn Collective is a flexible chamber ensemble that is dedicated to the performance of contemporary art music. The ensemble core is comprised of nine members, which includes performers, composers, and a conductor. However, the group may expand or contract as dictated by the repertory of each project. As the name suggests, Zohn Collective is an artist-driven organization that strives to produce projects that are generated by its members. For this reason, the diversity of backgrounds, interests, and expertise of each member is an essential and vibrant element of the group’s model.
Founded in 2017, Zohn Collective already has recorded its first CD under the label, Oberlin Music, which is expected to be released in spring of 2018, and is booked for various upcoming engagements, including a collaboration with the internationally recognized puppet company, La Coperacha, at the II Bienal Internacional de Teatro in Mexico.
