Wednesday: eighth blackbird

Last week was MusicNOW, Saturday was MAVerick, Tuesday is Fulcrum Point, and Wednesday brings eighth blackbird.  [Is there a theme here?  Except for Fulcrum Point, all of these ensembles have idiosyncratic capitalization.  And here I am writing on ChicagoNOW  And then there's also dal niente.]

eighth blackbird's concert is the Chicago premiere of "Slide" by Steve Mackey, a multi-media, genre-blending quasi-song cycle about "human frailty" and the "manipulation of the American psyche."
Sounds interesting. I have no idea what that means, but I'll tell you what I think come Thursday.
Deets:
  • Wednesday, March 24, 7:30pm
  • Harris Theater for Music and Dance (do I really have to say in Millennium Park every time?)
  • Buy Tickets
  • I'll be there; say hi.
