Exceptet is an ensemble with “vast emotional range and onomatopoetic charm“ (I Care If You Listen), founded around the unique instrumentation of Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat. Dedicated to commissioning new and exciting works from some of today’s finest emerging composers, the nascent group has commissioned and performed new works by composers Fjola Evans, Brooks Fredrickson, Paul Kerekes, Brian Petuch, and Eric Shanfield.  Percussionist Mark Utley is a Vic Firth artist, which featured Exceptet performing Chris Cerrone’s “Recovering” on its Facebook page in the Fall of 2015. In Spring of 2016, they will be presented by the MATA Interval Series in New York and by the Times Two series in Boston, where they will premiere new works by Scott Wollschleger, Brendon Randall-Myers, and Alex Weiser.
