ASHLEY BATHGATE at National Sawdust (June 25, 7 p.m.). Part of the ever-enjoyable Kettle Corn New Music series, this rare performance of Steve Reich’s “Cello Counterpoint,” for solo instrument and seven prerecorded doubles, will feature the cellist Ashley Bathgate playing music by Emily Cooley, Alex Weiser and Fjola Evans as well.

CANTATA PROFANA at Here (June 23-24, 7 p.m.; June 25, 2 p.m.). Adventurous programming, as ever, is on offer from this vocal and instrumental ensemble, this time exploring so-called ancient groove music and the evolution of dance music, from Machaut and Monteverdi to Reich and Gorecki. Jacob Ashworth, on the violin, is the artistic director.

‘TRAGEDY OPERA’ at National Sawdust (June 23, 7 p.m.). Julia Holter’s “Tragedy,” a 2011 album inspired by Euripides’ “Hippolytus,” gets turned into an opera here, with luxury accompaniment from the ensemble wild Up, and the composer’s vocals backed by a production from the artists Yelena Zhelezov and Zoe Aja Moore.
