From NCE Artistic Director
Leonid Sushansky

The Goal of the National Chamber Ensemble is to bring exceptional music that enriches our cultural life. From classical to contemporary compositions, internationally-acclaimed musicians provide outstanding performances of chamber music in an intimate setting. The Ensemble also hosts visiting guest artists.

To create an environment that is fun, welcoming and engaging, the musicians share fascinating, short anecdotes about the composer and music, giving the audience another perspective on understanding the performance. The National Chamber Ensemble offers the connoisseur, as well as the first-time concertgoer, an exciting, musical experience.
