Garmany Music Series Presents eighth blackbird
The Hartt School will present the two-time Grammy Award-winning sextet, eighth blackbird, on Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Lincoln Theater, for the second concert of this year’s Richard P. Garmany Chamber Music Series.
University of Hartford students, faculty, and staff may receive one free ticket by presenting current University ID at the Lincoln Theater Box Office. Individual concert tickets are $35, with discounts for seniors, educators, University of Hartford alumni, students, and groups. A special pre-concert dinner in Konover Campus Center, adjacent to Lincoln Theater, precedes the performance. To purchase concert and/or dinner tickets, or to get additional information, please visit or call the Box Office in Lincoln Theater at 860.768.4228 or 800.274.8587, or visit www.hartford.edu/hartt.
Since its founding in 1996, the Chicago-based sextet, eighth blackbird, has been hailed as one of the handful of most important new-music ensembles in the world. Its stature recently was confirmed with the announcement of an unprecedented three-year appointment as Ensemble in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Mark Swed of the L.A. Times wrote, “The blackbirds are examples of a new breed of super-musicians.” For more information about eighth blackbird, visit www.eighthblackbird.org.
The 2012-13 Richard P. Garmany Chamber Music Series began with a sold-out concert by Tempesta di Mare (Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra) on Oct. 18. The season continues with Imani Winds on Feb. 21, 2013, and concludes with Miró Quartet with special guest artist Colin Currie, percussion, on April 4, 2013.
The Garmany Series, which quickly has established itself as the region's premier showcase for visiting chamber music artists, is made possible in part by a grant from the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
