Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center
4th Floor, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Seattle 98103 (corner N 50th St. in Wallingford)

Every month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded presenters and artists offer ten concerts of adventurous music in an informal yet respectful all-ages setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences.

Shoup / Kelley / Campbell
Thu. Feb. 18; 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Alto saxist Wally Shoup, trumpeter Greg Kelley, and percussionist Greg Campbell integrate adventurous chops with keen ears and a deep sense of the laminal to create spontaneous coherences that move at the speed of response. This combination of far-ranging brass and woodwind textures, coupled with subtly shifting rhythms will perfectly suit the rich acoustical environment of the Chapel.

Inverted Space: Ferneyhough et al
Fri. Feb. 19; 7:30 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Inverted Space/UW Modern Ensemble performs Brian Ferneyhough’s Fanfare for Klaus Huber, Mort Subite, Adagissimo, Intermedio alla Ciaccona and Flurries.
