The MYCincinnati Ambassador Ensemble is a string sextet of young musicians led by MYCincinnati Director Eddy Kwon. For the 2014-15 school year, the group engaged in weekly critical discussions around identity, social justice, power, and the artist as an agent of change. Using these conversations as creative inspiration, Eddy worked with the students to compose a performance work that organically combines storytelling, avant chamber music, and social criticism with the ensemble's intense, youthful energy.
Renowned photographer Michael Wilson and multimedia artist Henry Wilson captured the year-long project in a gorgeous and powerful documentary film. Through the lens of one of America's most legendary photographers, viewers are allowed a look into the world of a truly unique ensemble, and the community they hope to inspire.
