Tontine Ensemble was founded in the spring of 2014 with the mission to perform improvisational works and to champion the compositions of Milwaukee composers. Its four current members first played together for a Blank Radio recording session and immediately began rehearsing regularly. Allen Russell, Molly Lieberman, Pat Reinholz, and Barry Paul Clark are all classically trained musicians who teach and regularly perform in a variety of styles around the Milwaukee area and beyond. Tontine Ensemble has appeared as guest artists at Mike Neumeyer and Friends, Danceworks, Inc., the Milwaukee Follies, Formations Series for New and Improvised Music, and Seed Sounds. Their recital for August 16th will feature Tontine Ensemble in various duo, trio, and full quartet arrangements, performing music of the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as premiering new works for the ensemble repertoire from composers in the current creative music communities in Milwaukee.
