Ensemble Signal is a large NY-based ensemble dedicated to offering the broadest possible audience access to a diverse range of visionary works through performance, commissioning, recording, and educational outreach. Its Artist roster includes some of most gifted and innovative young musicians working in New York. Signal performs under the musical direction of Brad Lubman, who founded the group along with cellist and co artistic director Lauren Radnofsky. Lubman, one of the premier conductors of new music, has worked closely with some of greatest composers of contemporary concert music – among them Berio, Boulez, Reich, Wuorinen, and Lachenmann – and has appeared with some of the world’s most illustrious orchestras and new music ensembles.

To form what The New York Times has described as “one of the most vital groups of its kind,” Lubman and Radnofsky assembled a “new music dream team” (TimeOutNY) of artists who have worked closely with one another and Lubman over the last decade. Members of JACK Quartet, Alarm Will Sound, and other leading New York ensembles perform regularly with the ensemble. Signal is flexible in size and instrumentation, enabling it to meet the demands of its diverse repertoire that ranges from Philip Glass to Helmut Lachenmann.
