2020-2021 Season

 

 

 

The schedule for all future concerts is subject to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus a lot of “tba” (to be announced) occurs. Please check this website frequently for updates.

 

SYBARITE5

 

Dubbed the “Millennial Kronos,” SYBARITE5’s eclectic repertoire from Bowie to Radiohead and Akiho to Assad, combined with its commanding performance style, is turning heads throughout the music world. The quintet’s debut album, Disturb the Silence, quickly reached the top ten on the Billboard charts. The group’s follow-up album, Everything in Its Right Place, was released at Carnegie Hall to critical acclaim. SYBARITE5 recently completed its latest album, Outliers, featuring all-new works from American composers.

American Chamber Players with Miles Hoffman

Among today’s most exciting and innovative chamber music ensembles, The American Chamber Players were formed in 1985 by Miles Hoffman from a core group of artists of The Library of Congress Summer Chamber Festival.  The ensemble performs repertoire ranging from familiar masterpieces to neglected gems to newly commissioned American works, and its fascinating and delightful programs with varied instrumental combinations have been as enthusiastically praised as its extraordinary, dynamic performances.

They have toured throughout North America, engaged and re-engaged by prestigious concert series, including Lincoln Friends of Chamber Music, and they have traveled to Paris for a series of special gala concerts at the Paris Opera and the Bibliothèque Nationale. They have also been heard countless times on National Public Radio’s Performance Today.

7:30 p.m., Tuesday, November 17, 2020
Johnny Carson Theater at the Lied Center
Single concert ticket prices: $25 adults; $5 students.

Aizuri String Quartet

Based in New York City, the Aizuri Quartet was the 2017-2018 MetLiveArts String Quartet-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they presented five unique programs throughout the season, leading The New York Times to applaud them as “a quartet of expert collaborators, who cogently traverse a range of repertoire staples and modern works.”

Aizuri formed in 2012, combines four distinctive musical personalities into a unique collective. The Aizuri Quartet draws its name from “aizuri-e,” a style of predominantly blue Japanese woodblock printing that is noted for its vibrancy and incredible detail.

ACRONYM, a Baroque Band

Baroque band ACRONYM—an “outstanding young early-music string ensemble” (The New Yorker)—is dedicated to giving modern premières of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century. Playing with “…consummate style, grace, and unity of spirit” (The New York Times), the group formed in 2012 and has released eight critically acclaimed CDs since 2014. Recent projects include the first modern performances and recordings of works by Biber and Rosenmüller, and Samuel Capricornus’s epic cantata cycle Jubilus Bernhardi with the Bach Choir of Holy Trinity. Forthcoming albums include the première recording of Johann Heinrich Schmelzer’s forgotten oratorio Le Memorie Dolorose alongside the early music ensemble TENET Vocal Artists.
