Welcome to the website of The OMNI Ensemble! We are the chamber music group created to perform a uniquely flexible repertoire. From the Renaissance to the contemporary Avant-Garde the ensemble presents programs of enormous variety, all designed to provide their audience with a musical diversity not ordinarily encountered in a single musical event. This variety of styles endows the group  with its unique perspective. Since 1983 The OMNI Ensemble has produced a successful concert  series noted for its innovative combination of programming and guest artists. These have included Composer/Instrumentalist David Amram, The Benevento/Russo Duo, Accordianist Guy Klucevsek, Mezzo Sopranos Katherine Ciesinski, Charlotte Hellekant, and Misa Iwama, Harpsichordist Gerald Ranck, Performance Artist John Kelley, Kumongo player Jin Hi Kim, and Saxophonist Roy Nathanson. Comissioned composers have included David Lang, Lee Hyla, Michael Bushnell, Eric Klein, Allen Campbell, David Wechsler and Jim Lahti. The OMNI Ensemble  recently released our first CD entitled the OMNI Ensemble plays the Music of Jim Lahti, available on CD Baby.     http://cdbaby.com/cd/omni
