Piano Ensemble

The Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble is directed by GRAMMY®-winning pianist Nadia Shpachenko, who often performs with the group. The Piano Ensemble performs repertoire for piano 4-hands, duo-piano and for 3-10 keyboard players on multiple instruments, which include pianos, toy pianos, and harpsichords. The Collaborative Piano Ensemble also collaborates with singers and instrumentalists. In addition to performing repertoire from the classical canon, the group’s mission is to program and promote newly-written piano ensemble repertoire and to collaborate with contemporary composers. Most recently the Cal Poly Pomona Piano Ensemble worked with composers Armando Bayolo, Nimrod Borenstein, Martin Bresnick, Tom Flaherty, Dai Fujikura, Christopher Jessup, Thomas Kotcheff, James Matheson, Tristan Perich, John Proulx, Samara Rice, Isaac Schankler, Adam Schoenberg, William Susman, Alex Weiser, and Jack Van Zandt. They recently toured many newly-written works in Florida, New York and California, and made many recordings, often in collaboration with professional guest artists.

Membership in the group is by audition only. Please contact the director, Dr. Nadia Shpachenko for more information.
