Based in Atlanta, Chamber Cartel has been hailed as “the darlings of Atlanta’s New Music scene” and “contemporary classical heavyweights” – The Goat Farm Arts Center.

Having a flexible instrumentation, Chamber Cartel has performed over seventeen concerts of unique programming since 2012 and commissioned more than seven works. We have collaborated with great artists such as nobrow.collective, Stacey Mastrian, the A/B Duo, Bent Frequency, CORE Performance Company, Lotte Betts-Dean, and Sonic Generator. In April of this year we will participate in the Northwestern University New Music Conference in Chicago performing Riding with Death, a piece written for the Cartel. We have also appeared at the Southeastern New Music Symposium at UGA and the University of Florida New Music Festival.

Our third season, Arcana, includes highlights such as, Le Marteau sans Maître, Tongues, The Brightest Form of Absence, Four Thousand Holes, and newly commissioned works from Aaron Jay Myers, Adam Scott Neal, Carolyn Chen, Tony Donofrio, Jon Turner, and our composer-in-association Marc Yeats. Later this year we will release our first CD, The Shape Distance, a collection of pieces by the same title written for Chamber Cartel by Marc Yeats.

We are thrilled to be working and making music with Stephen Wood and the “Wilderness Act Performance Series”!
