Hotel Elefant is a contemporary music ensemble dedicated to the music of innovative, living composers. Founded by composers Leaha Maria Villarreal and Mary Kouyoumdjian, Hotel Elefant brings an awareness of today’s music to the general public through commissions, performances, and moderated discussions among composers, performers, and audiences. With a flexible roster of more than 20 musicians, Hotel Elefant works closely with a broad spectrum of progressive artists including John Luther Adams, Richard Carrick, Michael Gordon, Paola Prestini, David T. Little, Angélica Negrón, Matt Marks, and Chinary Ung. The ensemble has performed at venues including Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Carnegie Hall, Look and Listen Festival, and Bang on a Can Marathon; collaborated with the Kronos Quartet and The Nouveau Classical Project; and partnered with BalletCollective, Experiments in Opera, and Ear Heart Music. Alongside its commitment to commissioning and performing new music, Hotel Elefant is dedicated to documenting the musical thoughts and experiences of contemporary artists through video, engaging thousands of viewers globally in the creative process.
