Co-founded by Angel Gil-Ordóñez and Joseph Horowitz in 2003, PostClassical Ensemble challenges and redefines what an orchestra does by radically rethinking the concert experience. The Washington Post has called them “wildly adventurous.”

They explore a contemporary “postclassical” musical landscape that supersedes outdated notions of “classical” versus “popular.” By flexibly expanding and contracting, PCE becomes an adaptable medium for instrumental music, ranging from chamber repertoire to full-orchestra compositions both old and new.
