Founded in 2004 by Richard Scerbo, Inscape Chamber Orchestra is pushing the boundaries of classical music with riveting performances that reach across genres and generations, and transcend the confines of the traditional classical concert experience.
With its flexible roster and unique brand of programming, this critically acclaimed, GRAMMY-nominated group of high energy master musicians has quickly established itself as one of the premier performing ensembles in the Washington, DC region and beyond. Inscape works joyously and often with emerging composers, commissioning and premiering over twenty new works since 2004.
Nominated for a 2014 GRAMMY Award for Best Surround Sound Album, Inscape's debut CD - Sprung Rhythm - has received rave reviews and extensive radio airplay around the world. This ground-breaking album features an exciting collection of works from three composers that express new and diverse voices in American Music. Released worldwide in August 2014 by Sono Luminus Records, Inscape's second commercial CD, American Aggregate, explores the rich and varied sounds of American music in the 21st century. The works featured on this provocative new album reflect American culture, landscape and environment as expressed through the distinctly American voices of seven young composers.
