Called “one of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music” by the New York Times, the ICE is dedicated to reshaping the way music is created and experienced. With a modular makeup of 35 leading instrumentalists performing in forces ranging from solos to large ensembles, ICE functions as performer, presenter, and educator, advancing the music of our time by developing innovative new works and new strategies for audience engagement. ICE redefines concert music as it brings together new work and new listeners in the 21st century.

The PAS and the UCM Department of Music will bring an ensemble of three ICE musicians to Warrensburg for a four-day residency that will include workshops and seminars focused on ICE and the arts in the 21st century, master classes, a presentation for K-2 students at Maple Grove Elementary, and a collaborative performance Wednesday evening involving the ICE musicians and student performers.

 Tickets for the ICE concert are only $3 for students and $7 for adults and are available at the Central Tickets box office in Administration 100, by calling 660-543-8888, online at ucmpas.com, and 1 hour prior to show time.

Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
