The Genre Nova Ensemble (formerly PI Ensemble) ... Performance and Improvisation Ensemble provides an opportunity for students to enrich their existing musical vocabularies and skills through practical exploration of many different world musics and improvisation across a range of genres and styles.  Emphasis is placed on transcription and creating a means of adaptation to the student’s primary (western) instrument.  Ensemble instruction will be divided into two modules per semester, each focusing on the musical styles of a particular region (Sub-Saharan Africa, South America/Central America/The Caribbean, Northern Africa/The Middle East, Asia).  PI ensembles will participate in intensive residencies and collaborative performances with visiting artists.
