Latitude 49
Latitude 49
Latitude 49 is a Chicago based mixed-chamber group blending the finesse of a classical ensemble with the drive and precision of a finely tuned rock band. With members coming together from across the United States and Canada, L49 epitomizes a diverse, unconventional family of sounds, instruments, and human experiences. The group holds Ensemble in Residence positions at the University of Michigan, the Kenosha Creative Space, and previously at the University of Illinois Chicago, and presents numerous concerts each season in major venues including the Ravinia Festival (Chicago), (le) Poisson Rouge (NYC) and Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Music Box. More than thirty works have been written for L49 so far by a multitude of composers ranging from aspiring students to Pulitzer prize-winning masters. With commissioning and supporting living composers at the heart of its mission, L49 strives to engage diverse audiences with new sounds and specially curated programs that reflect the world in which we find ourselves, with all its beauty and curiosities. With its name taken from the parallel that serves as the Canadian/United States border, Latitude 49 serves as a bridge between artists, composers, and listeners of today.
