NAKEDEYE ENSEMBLE

NakedEye was founded in 2009 and is directed by pianist Ju-Ping Song. Based in Lancaster, PA, it moves forward with a mission to promote, commission and present works by living composers throughout the world.

NakedEye's commission of Rusty Banks' Babbling Tower to Tower is a winner of New York City's 2011 UnCaged Toy Piano Composition Competition, and its commission of Randall Woolf's chamber concerto for piano Punching the Clock was a recipient of New Music USA's 2014 commissioning grant.

The ensemble has more than 80 works in its repertoire, including a growing number of commissions. NakedEye believes in the power of new music to surprise, uplift, and change.
