Called "hard-grooving musicians" by The New York Times, Chicago-based Third Coast Percussion has been recognized for its "superb" (New Yorker) sound, unique take on percussion instrumentation, and integration of new media in performances. (So integrated, that they've offered free phone and tablet apps at their performances to enhance audience experience.) This evening, they'll perform David Little's "Haunt of Last Nightfall," which blends pre-recorded heavy metal sounds with live percussion for a "tender, elegiac, dark, and epic" experience. They'll also perform other Third Coast Percussion favorites, including John Cage's "Credo in Us." The group -- Sean Connors, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, and David Skidmore -- is Ensemble-in-Residence at University of Notre Dame's DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, and is known for working closely with new composers and integrating community outreach and workshops on their tours.

NOW Ensemble's seven-member group is committed to innovative, engaging pieces, with a reputation for performing genre-crossing music. The group's eclectic performances have been described as "the formal elegance of chamber music with a pop-honed concision and rhythmic vitality" by Time Out New York, and International Concert Review said their music "breathes the air of this planet." They'll be performing a piece called "Change" by Judd Greenstein -- their in-house composer -- Derek Bermel's "Twin Trio" and other works. With influences ranging from electronica to hip hop and jazz, their repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary, while their unique instrumentation -- a combination of flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, and piano makes them a "we-can-play-anything chamber collective" (New York Magazine). Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Town Music series, curated by Joshua Roman. Series supported by the Wyncote Foundation NW, Tagney-Jones Family Fund, and the Nesholm Family Foundation.

Extending the collaboration begun in last season's breathtaking duet concert, Town Music Artistic Director Joshua Roman takes the stage with acclaimed Lithuanian pianist Andrius Zlabys, for an evening of piano quartets -- old favorites and possibly, some you've never heard. Joining them will be Australian violinist Susie Park and another special guest on the viola. They'll be performing Yevgeniy Sharlat's "Piano Quartet," Johannes Brahms' "Quartet in G Minor op. 25," and Timo Andres' "I Found It By The Sea." Andres' piece was composed to pay homage to Brahms' quartet -- Andres' "benchmark for great chamber music." Hailed by The Washington Post as "prodigiously talented," Park joins Roman, former principal cellist with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra (called "a cellist of extraordinary technical and musical gifts" by San Francisco Chronicle), and Grammy-nominated Zlabys -- a prizewinner at the esteemed Cleveland International Piano Competition.
