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.

Smith-McElroy Duo
Thu. June 6, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

Flutist Colleen McElroy and saxophonist Evan Smith explore an adventurous program of modern music featuring the new work Six Moments by Seattle composer Tom Baker. The duo aims to expand the palette of existing repertoire for these two instruments while challenging the preconceptions of each instrument’s role in classical and contemporary music.

Lori Goldston: Rivulet

Seattle cellist/composer Lori Goldston, joined by a broadly skilled ensemble of local collaborators – Dave Abramson (percussion & drum set), Haley Freedlund (trombone), Kole Galbraith (bass), Greg Kelley (trumpet), Austin Larkin (violin) – premiers Rivulet, a new piece created especially for this concert about collective strength and imagination, and extra-linguistic memory moving in music and water. Presented by Nonsequitur.

Rae + Levi Gillis
Sat. June 8, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

New trio Rae consists of Abbey Blackwell (bass), Ronan Delisle (guitar), and Evan Woodle (drums).
