Cross-field collaborations

Modelo62 works with artists and organisations from different fields. We forms close collaborations with artists, developing new work and talent. We place an emphasis on combining the commissioning of works of upcoming composers with those from more established ones. These commissions have formed a good part of the ensemble’s growing repertoire of tailor-made premieres over the 20 years of the ensemble existence.
