New Sounds

Chamber Folk Pop

Saturday, May 31, 2014

For this New Sounds program, hear music that falls in the space between classical and pop, as well as in the small hollow between chamber music and folk.  There’s electronic chamber pop music by composer Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) for yMusic, the versatile composer/performer collective, and some post-rock from the Arcade Fire’s multi-instrumentalist, Richard Reed Parry, in the guise of the  ensemble, Bell Orchestre.   We'll also expand the folk umbrella to include traditional instruments of Korea and Japan making chamber music.
