Quintilia is a contemporary chamber ensemble committed to building and supporting community through experimental and vernacular music. Based in several physical locations, we aim to collaborate with our prospective local arts communities and anti-oppression organizers through our programming, venue selection and presentation. Collaboration and improvisation are at the core of our practice, as we focus on works for open/flexible instrumentation and newly commissioned projects. Our members include Francesca Leo (flutes and musicians’ health), Thomas Morris (oboe), Tyler Neidermayer (clarinets/electronics and composition), Yaz Lancaster (violin/multi-instrumentalist and composition) and Gramm Drennen (cello and composition). We are currently based between New York City, Ann Arbor/Detroit, and Newport News, Virginia.
