The Columbus Ohio Discovery Ensemble (CODE) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit contemporary music ensemble in Central Ohio founded in 2014 by Artistic Director, Michael Rene Torres, that is dedicated to the promotion, performance, and perception of contemporary concert music in our community. With a special interest in collaborating with Ohio composers and Ohio performing artists, CODE presents a variety of musical styles and aesthetics while searching for innovative ways to meaningfully engage Ohio audiences with substantive new music. CODE has performed all over the greater Columbus area, premiered several new works by living composers, collaborated with several arts organizations and other artforms such as poetry and dance, and has strived to work towards equity in the diverse compositional voices represented. We're dedicated to presenting our music free of admission and open to everyone. Never been to a CODE show? Learn about the experience here!
