Soli Chamber Ensemble: San Antonio's premier champion of modern and contemporary music
"“Musica, por un tiempo” is intelligently planned and expertly crafted, as one expects from Rodriguez, and both pleasing and challenging to the ear. It should have a long life. The spirited performance was by the core SOLI players -- clarinetist Stephanie Key, violinist Ertan Torgul, cellist David Mollenauer and pianist Carolyn True." - Mike Greenberg
Voted Best Chamber Ensemble by the San Antonio Current in 2006 for the second year, SOLI Chamber Ensemble is a not-for-profit instrumental ensemble seeking to promote the awareness and appreciation of twentieth- and twenty-first-century classical music among audiences. With repertoire ranging from standard classical works to newly commissioned pieces, the group’s mission is to bring this music closer to wider audiences beyond new music enthusiasts. Known for its strong commitment to commissioning new works during its 2001-2002 seasons, SOLI co-commissioned the Grammy Award nominated work 'Nine Episodes for Four Players', from the world re-known American composer, Ned Rorem. SOLI's core members are Ertan Torgul, violin, Stephanie Key, clarinet, David Mollenauer, cello and Carolyn E. True, piano.
SOLI Chamber Ensemble has received several prestigious awards, including grants from the Genevieve McDavitt Orsinger Foundation and the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and most recently a grant to present special guest artists on its two spring concerts from the Russell Hill Rogers Foundation. Other awards include two Meet the Composer grants from the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from the Department of Arts and Cultural Affairs and the City of San Antonio. Annually, SOLI performs numerous children's concerts through Class Acts and has been on the Texas Commission for the Arts Touring Roster.
