Seattle Scene: May 31 – June 9, 2018

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.

Christian Asplund & Melissa Heath
Thu. May 31, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

Melissa Heath and Christian Asplund perform an eclectic mix of works for soprano with piano and viola. The program includes mysteriously lyrical songs by Ligeti and Lutoslawski, an early cycle by Messiaen, characteristically laconic selections from Webern’s Op. 12 cycle, works by Cage and Ives, a Javanese tinged-song by Jarrad Powell, and a characteristically eclectic mini-opera by Asplund.
