Some Assembly Required

Mixed chamber ensemble Some Assembly Required began in early 2015 as a collaborative effort between Boston professional and freelance artists to provide their audience with a unique musical experience, frequently venturing into repertoire that is rarely heard in public performance.

We traveled to Kentucky in December, 2016, to music for Justin Croushore's new album (to be released later this year). We had a great time recording, and also gave a recital at the University of Kentucky. The video below is a compilation of SAR performing Bruce Stark's "Suite for Horn, Trombone, and Piano." 

Guest artist Danielle Wilson plays the Brahms Horn Trio on our December 2016 program with Justin Stanley and Cholong Park.
