The Ensemble 101 is putting together our first season!  We're composing a slew of new works and we're going to take them on tour.

In order to finance our tour, we're creating singtones!  A singtone is a sung ringtone.  Perfect for phone ringtones, alarms, e-birthday cards, and/or jingles. They're also a great way to thank dad and grads in June - we'll make yours before our project is fully funded if you need it right away. For a $25 pledge we'll customize one of the templates below and for $101 we'll write you an original singtone or sing an arrangement of your favorite jazz tune! Singtones work on the iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.

To thank everyone for taking the time to visit our site, we would like to give you a free singtone. Please download it here.

Below are the templates for the $25 reward written for Kevin, Johnny, Joey, and Timothy respectively. But we'll use any name when we sing your customized one! Have a long name like Alexandria? No problem - we'll make it work! And instead of saying "it's your phone" or what have you we will sing "it's your wife" or husband or daughter or son or whoever!  We'll make the rhymes work out and we'll take any lyric suggestions if you have a precise idea in mind for the customization of the template.  Note: to relisten to ring tones below, just click on the "x" in the upper right corner of the audio file after it has finished playing.

And here's an example of an original tune that we've composed for the $101 reward.  Thanks Will!

Nous avons chanté cette singtone pour le reveil du papa de Samuel Pilot. Merci Samuel !

Customized, original music lasts a lifetime. If you have a singtone of your own, it becomes part of your identity: people hear the ringtone and think of you. Not unlike a superhero, you have your own music following you around! And it is great as a gift as well - when the person hears the ringtone, they'll think of your generosity. Their theme song exists thanks to you!

As our project evolves, we'll be asking certain donors if we can post their original singtones to this website.  That will give you an idea of the type of original music we are composing for people.

Otherwise, here is some of the music we'll be singing in our 2013 season! Don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to come to one of our shows - we'll be touring France and Ireland!
