The NeoArs Sonora Ensemble was created in 2008 by a group of professional musicians experienced in the interpretation of contemporary music, and enthusiastic about the prospect of performing together. Since its inception, the group has enjoyed stimulating artistic activity both inside and outside of Spain, including performances for the European Festivals Association Congress in 2009, and for the prominent contemporary music festival "Jornadas de Música Contemporánea" in Sevilla and Granada in 2010. NeoArs Sonora Ensemble strives to support and promote artistic excellence in contemporary composition. They have performed the creations of many important Spanish composers, prominent international composers, and premiered compositions by emerging student composers. During their 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 seasons, NeoArs commissioned works by Marisa Manchado, Iluminada Perez, and Diana Perez.
