Who We Are:

Since 2006, Inscape has presented Washington DC area audiences with unique performances that explore the depths of the chamber orchestra and chamber music repertoire.  We have commissioned and premiered over a dozen new works by emerging young American composers.  By presenting these works alongside the classic repertoire, we are able to shed renewed light on new and old compositions.

What We Need:

Inscape needs your help to support one of our most ambitious projects yet.  On May 20, 2012, Inscape Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Artistic Director Richard Scerbo, presents a concert that explores American composers and their commentary on the cultural and physical landscape of our nation.  This program, entitled American Reflections, features clarinet soloist Evan R. Solomon in John Adams's Gnarly Buttons, along with baritone James Rogers and pianist Tessa Hartle in songs by Charles Ives.  Inscape will also perform John Adams's Christian Zeal and Activity and Michael Torke's Adjustable Wrench to complete the program.    

More About Us:

Inscape's performances have been widely acclaimed by The Washington Post, which praised the ensemble for their "guts and musical sensitivity."  Inscape is currently the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, Maryland.  Support for past programs has been awarded by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. 

As a 501(c)3 organization, your donation to Inscape is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
