Durward Ensemble

Durward is a new music ensemble I created in the spring of 2015. We held our first performance at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on September 8, 2016. Since, we have commissioned many composers to write pieces for our unique instrumentation as a full ensemble.

We have since raised $2000 for the American Cancer Society and recorded our first album fall 2018 which can be found on many digital platforms such as: iTunes and Amazon Music. For more information, please go to our webpage: Durward Ensemble

Here is a sound file of Eclipse by Laura Elise Schwendinger written for and premiered by Durward in 2018.
