Fonema Consort was founded in 2011 by singer Nina Dante and composers Pablo Santiago Chin and Edward Hamel. Named “Best New Vocal-Oriented Contemporary Classical Ensemble of 2014” by the Chicago Reader, the ensemble has quickly earned a place in Chicago’s new music community, and is building a national and international audience with performances across the US as well as in Europe and Latin American. The ensemble’s upcoming 2017-2018 season includes a residency at Harvard University featuring the work of Julio Estrada, an Ecuadorian tour supported by an Ernst von Siemens grant, and a residency at the Claremont Colleges in California among other events.
