Words from Andy Hudson:

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the Latitude 49 family! This is one of the most dynamic and vibrant ensembles I’ve ever encountered, and the possibilities L49 affords to composers and audiences are endless. During our recent series of performances in Chicago, I was stunned by the ensemble’s power, musical nuance, and emotional depth. Their sincere love of chamber music (and one another) made the rehearsal experience intensely satisfying. Having always admired the ensemble from afar, I am honored by this opportunity to join the important work Latitude 49 is doing as we continue to solidify our unique space in the chamber music community. I can't wait to explore together as we partner with composers to create new works and share them with our audience.”
