Responding to the need to support the remarkable vitality of contemporary music creation in Mexico, Mexico's National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA) created the Centro de Experimentación y Producción de Música Contemporánea (CEPROMUSIC) as a venue dedicated to the creation, performance, and dissemination of new music and sound experimentation. Ensamble CEPROMUSIC is the center's first project and responds to the need for a professional, full-time group for new music. Led by José Luis Castillo, the 20-member professional ensemble had its debut in November 2012 in a program of music by Manuel Enríquez and György Ligeti. In its Music of the Americas debut, Ensemble CEPROMUSIC will present new music by Mexican composers.
