    Atlantic Collective is an adaptive, flexible chamber ensemble performing concert music that explores social and cultural themes. Formed during the COVID-19 pandemic, each musician has worked collaboratively or professionally with one another in various classical, contemporary, and pop music settings. As an ensemble, Atlantic Collective seeks to invigorate classical and contemporary repertoire by performing works from around the globe that illustrate our common humanity. Atlantic Collective’s varied instrumentation allows for performances to be a multi-sonic experience, drawing the listener in with an array of voicings and textures on a single program. Tonight, the collective presents “Mixtape”, a collection of short works and movements in a variety of instrument configurations reflecting the mood of the times. It’s like your iPod shuffle has started working again and has come to life in concert form.
