Thread Ensemble surprises and delights listeners by involving them directly in the creative process.

Through its annual series of varied interactive events, Thread Ensemble adapts to each unique audience and environment with original music created in the moment. Thread Ensemble curates the connection between listeners’ lived experiences and improvised music.

Thread Ensemble is the convergence of three unique voices: Abigale Reisman and Rachel Panitch on violins, and Andria Nicodemou on vibraphone and percussion. Thread formed via an Ensemble Fellowship at New England Conservatory’s Community Performances & Partnerships Department in 2012 where they performed at community centers and schools around Greater Boston. Thread has since been chosen to represent NEC’s Contemporary Improvisation Department in a number of settings including a storytelling residency at Bridge Boston Charter School.

Thread Ensemble has curated Happenings at Arnold Arboretum and Boston Public Market, and has performed at Boston Children’s Museum and the Outside the Box Festival on Boston Common.
