Special Performance: Eighth Blackbird

Apr 22, 2018

Four-time Grammy Award winners Eighth Blackbird at the Clyfford Still Museum for one night only!

Join us for this special musical happening courtesy of our partners Friends of Chamber Music.

Launched by six entrepreneurial Oberlin Conservatory undergraduates in 1996, Eighth Blackbird is "one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet" according to the Chicago Tribune. Over the course of two decades, the group has commissioned and premiered hundreds of works by numerous composers, released eight acclaimed recordings, and won four Grammy Awards. They were named Musical America's 2017 Ensemble of the Year, and in 2016 were the inaugural recipients of Chamber Music America's Visionary Award.
