Since its founding in 2010, it has premiered more than a dozen pieces, including works by Marc Mellis, Jonathan Russell, Lisa Bielawa, and Theresa Wong. In addition, it has performed pieces by Steve Reich, Evan Ziporyn, and the Helia Music Collective and arrangements by J.S. Bach, Percy Grainger, and Earth, Wind & Fire. The ensemble was featured at the SFCM Centennial Gala and was a performer at ClarinetFest 2019 in Knoxville, TN and ClarinetFest 2022 in Reno, NV.
