Based in Miami, and co-founder by Sam Hyken and Jacomo Bairos, Nu Deco Ensemble is a virtuosic and eclectic chamber orchestra designed for the 21st century. Through exciting and adventurous classical music performances, Nu Deco Ensemble presents various styles of music, art, and media collaborations in both traditional and alternative venues.
Working in conjunction with local musicians, composers, DJs, dancers, visual and media artists, Nu Deco Ensemble creates a new hybrid of compelling musical and multi-media experiences. Blending masterful musicianship with a wide range of repertoire from classical to pop, Nu Deco Ensemble strives to be South Florida’s leader in genre-bending musical exploration.
Nu Deco Ensemble cultivates the education and development of tomorrow’s artists through digital and interactive educational performances, young composer readings, musician workshops, as well as master-classes and competitions for youth. Through outreach, Nu Deco Ensemble aims to engage the community and present concerts for free to Miami’s multi-cultural neighborhoods where exposure to live classical performance may be limited. With goals of creating and reaching new and diverse audiences, as well as providing inspiration to young people, Nu Deco Ensemble strives to enrich the arts scene of Miami in a dramatic and sophisticated fashion.
