For over 35 years, the Paul Dresher Ensemble has been a creative force and active member of the San Francisco Bay Area and our the national arts community. In addition to our artistic programs — creating and performing new works of music theater, commissioning and premiering contemporary chamber music for electro-acoustic ensembles, and collaborating with artists other disciplines — we offer regular community programs that promote the health and vitality of artists and arts organizations across the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our community programs provide local artists and arts organizations with:
- Low cost or free technical, managerial, and marketing consultations
- Fiscal sponsorships
- Use of our well-equipped facilities, including:
- large studio (now with a professional dance floor)
- well equipped construction shop
- extensive inventory of sound, recording and lighting equipment.
Finally, through our Dresher Ensemble Artists Residency program, we provide up to 6 multi-week studio residencies each year to Northern California artists working in the time-based arts.
