These activities are realized with the support of the School of Music at Florida International University as well as numerous other institutions in and outside of the university and the South Florida area.

PART I. Concerts By The Nodus Ensemble
The Nodus Ensemble
Initiated by faculty composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia, NODUS is the contemporary chamber music ensemble in residence at Florida International University's School of Music. Specializing in the cutting edge Art music of our time, the makeup of the ensemble varies for each concert depending on the works being presented. The ensemble's repertoire includes recent music by composers from around the world as well as works written specifically for the ensemble.

NODUS debut at the FIU Festival of the Arts in November 1998 and shortly thereafter was featured at the January 1999 New Music Miami Festival. Subsequent performances have included the 1999, 2000, and 2001 FIU Music Festival, the 2001 Music of the Americas Festival, the 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007 New Music Miami ISCM Festival, the 2004 International Computer Music Conference, and numerous other concerts held at a variety of South Florida venues over the past several seasons. The ensemble has been featured at the Norton Museum, Wertheim Performing Arts Center, the Wolfsonian, Spanish Cultural Center, Miami Art Central, among other performing spaces in the region. The musicians in NODUS include internationally acclaimed performers, sopranos Michelle Auslander and Karen Neal, tenor Robert Dundas, flutist Elissa Lakofsky, clarinetist Paul Green, saxophonist Roby George, pianists Jose Lopez and Jennifer Snyder, percussionist Michael Launius, violinist Saul Bitran, violist Laura Wilcox, cellist Phil Lakofsky, contrabassist Luis Gomez Imbert, among others.

2006 - 2007 NODUS Concert Series
NODUS Ensemble at MAC Concert I - Images from the composer's eyes: A concert of works for video and video with instruments - October 21, 2006 at 8:00 PM

Visual artists and musicians approach images and sound in different ways. Tonight's concert features works by composers that have incorporated visual images into their music either by combining them with computer generated sounds and/or more traditional orchestral instruments as well as those that have collaborated with visual artists in the creation of their works.

NODUS at Miami Art Central - Concert II - Political Musical Statements: A concert of contemporary solo and chamber music with a political message. Featuring NODUS and guest artist composer performer David Bithell; Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 8:00 PM

As with visual artists, composers have been interested in using the music to express political views. Some composers have done it in obvious ways with sung, spoken text, titles of works, and even dedications. Others have used melodies and even musical concepts to create political statements. This concert features the music of some of the composers that have made political statements with their musical creations over the last 40 years.
