Remembering Ryan Muncy

Virtuoso saxophonist and invaluable member of the community

New Focus joins with the whole contemporary music community in mourning the passing of virtuoso saxophonist, wonderful colleague, and friend to many Ryan Muncy. Ryan was saxophonist and member of the International Contemporary Ensemble, where he also served as Director of Institional Giving. Previously, he was Artistic Director and saxophonist for Chicago based Ensemble Dal Niente. His work advocating for composers and performers of contemporary music through his performances, administrative activities, and overall spirit of generosity and support cannot be overstated. We are grateful that Ryan's artistry lives on in his many live and studio recordings, where he focused on solo, ensemble, and electro-acoustic works for saxophone that transformed the repertoire for the instrument.
