On Saturday, March 7th, I will be playing with the Now Hear Ensemble as part of Classical Revolution L.A. This series of concerts, which are presented on the first Saturday of every month at the Silverlake Lounge in Los Angeles, brings Chamber Music and New Music out of the concert halls and into a comfy and casual “dive bar” setting. Mark Swed of the L.A. Times called it an “addictive new series,” that can make chamber music “startlingly subversive.”
We will be premiering a brand new work by our violist Jonathan Morgan titled “DECOMPOSED: A (Neo)Baroque Suite“, as well as some old favorites from the Made in California Project by composers Dan VanHassel, Jon Myers, and Carolyn Chen. We will be joined by guest artists Zaq Kenefick (saxophone), Adriane Hill (flute), and Tyler Stell (percussion). The duo HOCKET will also be presenting a program for two toy pianos.
Classical Revolution writes in their press release “SoCal new music rock stars, the Now Hear Ensemble and HOCKET, bring adventurous and occasionally off-the-wall music to Classical Revolution: L.A. The Now Hear Ensemble is the resident ensemble of the University of California, Santa Barbara Department of Music. You’ll usually catch them at new music hot spots like REDCAT and the Carlsbad Music Festival, but this intrepid band of new music evangelists is bringing the music to Classical Revolution: L.A.’s gritty dive-bar series at the Silverlake Lounge.”
The event is 21+, and starts at 6:00 pm.
Hope to see you there!
