Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center

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.

Ted Poor & Cuong Vu
Thu. Sep. 5, 8 PM; $15 general, $10 students
