Update: Call for works 2013
SMP Ensemble was founded in October 2008 by its initial musical director, Andrzej Nowicki, and is based in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. The group comprises an ever-changing line-up of performers and contributors. Since May 2011, SMP Ensemble has been co-directed by several of its core members, Anton Killin, Karlo Margetic and Carol Shortis.
The group produces several concerts per year, including some charity projects. Music played includes classical and contemporary chamber music, electroacoustic music, and experimental performances, often with a focus on New Zealand composition. The ensemble mainly comprises recent graduates of Te Koki The New Zealand School of Music, with occasional use of current students, staff, and other guest artists.
