What People Are Saying:

“Any contemporary music fan, casual or diehard, who has been intrigued, seduced and occasionally perplexed by the ensemble known as the California E.A.R. Unit over the years knows that they're busy doing the right thing. Now celebrating its 25 year anniversary, the chamber group has become one of the nation's premier purveyors of new music, freely blending seriousness of intent and technical bravura with a sense of fun and adventure on the gig.”

“Here are some of the best things I heard this year: California EAR Unit playing Julius Eastman's Music at REDCAT”.

 - Alex Ross’s Blog 2007

“The EAR Unit, rounding out 18 years’ residence at LACMA, was and remains a unique organization, above all for a certain built-in ecstasy in its playing that sends everything skyward.”
