(In today’s performance, we are pleased to be joined by special guest artist Sari Reist, performing cello). The Atlantic Ensemble has performed throughout the United States, and Europe. They are dedicated to commissioning and performing new works by American composers and are committed to teaching the next generation of young musicians. Composers such as Lawrence Dillon, Charles Ruggiero, Michael Kurek, Greg Danner, Michael Slayton, Stan Link, and Michael Rothkopf have written for the Atlantic Ensemble. In September 2012, they gave the World Premiere of Lawrence Dillon's "Saturn Dreams of Mercury" at Tennessee Tech University.
