New Music Ensemble

The CSUSB New Music Ensemble is dedicated to the study, preparation, and performance of contemporary repertoire. In addition to serving as the laboratory ensemble of the department’s composition and music technology programs, the ensemble is also committed to fostering new works, by commissioning and collaborating with other emerging and student composers from around the Inland Empire and beyond.

Participation in New Music Ensemble (MUS 3833) is open to all interested instrumentalists and vocalists of all skill levels, as well as electronic musicians, and non-music majors. The ensemble meets and rehearses on an ad-lib basis each semester. Please contact the ensemble's director, Dr. Kevin Zhang, at for more information.
