Seattle Scene: March 23-April 15, 2017

From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:


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.

Cursive: Tall Wind
Thu. March 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Cursive is a new chamber group specializing in performing unjustly neglected modern classical works with a shifting ensemble, making each program unique not only in its instrumentation but in its mixture of composers, styles and moods. This concert is built around a stunning early work by Cambodian-American composer Chinary Ung, as well as the 10 Blake Songs of Vaughan Williams and Aether by the Jordan Nobles.

Lori Goldston
Fri. March 24, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Seattle based cellist and composer Lori Goldston plays amplified cello, probably solo, in honor of her friend, visual artist, musician and poet Geneviève Castrée, whose death in 2016 left a gigantic hole in many hearts.

Concert Imaginaire
Fri. March 31, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Concert Imaginaire is a chamber ensemble founded by composer/guitarist David Hahn. Tonight, the world premiere of Chippewa Songs, Aria Anum J, and Slogan, for narrator and ensemble. The title piece features the Orango-Tango dancers – one man, one, woman, one orangutan. Slogan, also a world premiere, for narrator and ensemble. Visuals by Leo Mayberry.
