Otonal is a collective of composers creating exciting, genre defying New Music and producing small ensemble performances. Rather than relying solely upon the massive institutions of old, Otonal has a boutique, DIY attitude, putting on their own concerts and relying upon ticket sales, fundraising, and ethical sponsorships to showcase their music in a unique array of settings.
Formed in 2018 at the Juilliard School, Otonal members are spread across the globe and come from a variety of professional fields, spanning the arts and sciences, to business and beyond. This diverse background of disciplines brings unique passion, ingenuity, and industry to composing as never before seen in the classical music world.
In their first year, Otonal sold out their debut concert at The National Opera Center (NYC), collaborated with another new music group for a concert at Church of the Good Shepherd in Lincoln Center, had their works played by the famed string quintet group Sybarite5, and collaborated with audiovisual artist Fernando Molina to produce an Apollo 11 tribute concert in August.
By using musical composition and performance art to explore relevant cultural themes, Otonal aspires to permeate genres and generations, delivering accessible contemporary classical music to audiences from all walks of life.
