The OMNI Ensemble is a chamber music group created to perform a uniquely flexible repertoire. From the Renaissance to the contemporary Avant-Garde, the ensemble presents programs of enormous variety, all designed to provide their audience with a musical diversity not ordinarily encountered in a single musical event. Flutist/Music Director David Wechsler’s crossover style utilizes electronically treated acoustic instruments as well as the Midi wind controller for his performances and compositions. Cellist Brian Snow’s vast experience as a chamber, symphony, soloist and theater performer provide a new dimension to OMNI’s electronic and improvisatory pieces. Pianist John Cheek combines a fluency of virtuoso piano music of the past with the synthesizer as an expressive concert instrument. This variety of styles and personalities endows The OMNI Ensemble with its unique perspective.

Since 1983, the OMNI Ensemble has produced a successful concert series noted for its innovative combination of programming and guest artists. These have included Composer/Instrumentalist David Amram, Mezzo Sopranos Katherine Ciesinski, Charlotte Hellekant and Misa Iwama, Harpsichordists Gerald Ranck and Rebecca Pechevsky, Performance Artist John Kelley, Kumongo player Jin Hi Kim, Saxophonist Roy Nathanson and accordionist Guy Klucevsek. Commissioned composers have included David Lang, Lee Hyla, Michael Bushnell, Eric Klein, Allen Campbell, David Lang, Lee Hyla, Michael Bushnell, Eric Klein, Allen Campbell, David Wechsler and Jim Lahti.
