Concerts and presentations
PostClassical Ensemble is joined by world-renowned trombonist David Taylor and award-winning actor Edward Gero, in a new imagining of the Stravinsky classic with a new moral: #SAVETHEARTS.
In this online streamed concert, PostClassical Ensemble musicians, reunited for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, play Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Violin and Percussion, which may well be the most formidable ever composed by an American.
PostClassical Ensemble presents a new virtual series, Up Close With…, an in-depth virtual discussion with our musicians. In this series, we hope to inspire you by showcasing our players and featuring our music in a whole new way.
