Kamratōn works to expand the contemporary chamber music repertoire and celebrate the role of women as leaders through adventurous, genre-bending performances. When a group of frequent collaborators founded Kamratōn in 2015, we strived to offer something vital and original to Pittsburgh's new music community, and we've developed an aesthetic and a practice that is both experimental and collaborative. We are committed to presenting women-created and women-curated new music in our regular programming and through our annual She Scores series, and we continue to work toward diversity and inclusivity on stage and in our field.

Now in our eighth season, we have premiered over 50 new works, including two fully staged chamber operas and Erin Roger’s On View, commissioned by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition. Our 2022-2023 season features the premiere of new works by Brittany J. Greene, Emmanuel Berrido, Christian Mechem, and Kamratōn-member Emily Cook at performances in Pittsburgh, PA, Brooklyn, NY, and throughout the Midwest.

Kamratōn has performed on the New Hazlett Theater's Community Supported Arts (CSA) series, the Beyond: Microtonal Music Festival, the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music, Kent State Stark's new music series, and Cleveland's Re:Sound Festival. We also served as ensemble-on-residence at the 2021 virtual SCI Student Composers Conference and at Duke University.
