Violinist and SOLI Chamber Ensemble Artistic Director Ertan Torgul said his group specializes in contemporary classical music and has commissioned over 40 works in the group's time together.
They pay musicians to write new classical compositions and then SOLI debuts them in San Antonio.
"All we’re doing really is performing stuff that is new, just like in Beethoven’s day," Torgul said.
Torgul reminds us that even the classics were contemporary at one time.
"We’re doing the same thing for today’s composers," he said.
