Musica Viva presents: Eighth Blackbird

February 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$30 – $133

“Professionalism and proficiency amplified by that indefinable X factor, charisma.” New York Times

Celebrate the joy of the new with Eighth Blackbird. The closest thing classical music has to a rock band, this ensemble – described by the LA Times as a collection of ‘supermusicians’ – revels in the work of living composers, played with love, virtuosity and enjoyment. This tour sees them delving into contemporary gems by Muhly, Dessner, Hearne and Andres, alongside a world premiere by Sydney composer Holly Harrison.
