American Modern Ensemble is based in New York City and celebrates American contemporary classical music.

Cask of Amontillado opera

The American Modern Ensemble performed the world premiere of new orchestrations of Stewart Copeland’s The Cask of Amontillado based on the story by Edgar Allen Poe. Stewart wrote the opera many years ago for a smaller ensemble, and I helped him re-orchestrate the show for AME’s orchestra. I was also the music copyist and did the music engravings for G. Schirmer.
