Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) focuses on 20th and 21st century music that is relevant, engaging, original and compelling—that resonates today and will speak to tomorrow—and we strongly believe in the power of artistic beauty, intelligence, wit, lyricism, and irony to create a deep understanding of our times and the human condition. E4TT's debut CD Surviving: Women's Words (Centaur CRC 3490) was reviewed at Examiner.com as "...four passionate meditations on the Holocaust experience delivered through a unique and highly compelling pair of voices, those of both composer and singer" and at American Record Guide as "fascinating," with music that is "...compelling, varied and harmonically interesting" and "creates a dark, contemplative atmosphere. Surviving: Women's Words won a Silver Medal in the 2016 Global Music Awards.

Ensemble for These Times is honored to be a fiscally sponsored affiliate of the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, a non-profit organization dedicated to the service of chamber music in California.
