The Texas New Music Ensemble is dedicated to the enrichment of Texas communities through the performance of contemporary art music created by Texas composers and performed by Texas musicians. The organization commissioned new works from ten different Texas composers for the 2017 season, and the compositions from the five Houston-area composers will be presented in a special concert at the Bayou Theater. The performance will feature duets, trios and quartets, as well as a piece for bass clarinet and computer. Special guest, Alejandro Basulto-Martinez, winner of TNME's 2016-2017 Student Composer Competition, has also been commissioned for a new work and will be presenting it at this concert as well.
