The percussion duo Spectrum Ensemble has prepared music that showcases famous and up-and-coming Queer composers and their music. This exciting percussion duo (Jaime Esposito and SA Hall) works to increase the visibility of talented Queer musicians and composers.”


For years, Spectrum Ensemble was an idea incubating in Jaime Esposito’s mind. The idea grew after noticing that there is a distinct lack of LGBTQIA+ representation despite Queer artists making up a large part of the classical music community. As the idea grew, Jaime realized their passion is to give the Queer community a platform to create and make music together.

​Jaime and co-founder SA Hall were friends ever since they attended Northwestern University together. After hearing Jaime passionately talk about this idea, it was SA’s enthusiasm and willingness to jump on board with the project that acted as a catalyst to finally create Spectrum Ensemble.
