The Slee Sinfonietta, which is also the flagship ensemble of the Robert and Carol Morris Center for 21st Century Music, presents a series of concerts each year of challenging new works by contemporary composers and lesser-known works from the chamber orchestra repertoire.
Founded in 1997 by Felder, and comprised of a core group that includes UB faculty performance artists, visiting artists, national and regional professionals, and advanced performance students, the group is conducted by leading conductors and composers.
