10th Wave Chamber Collective Colloquium at Bjorling Recital Hall
This Event Occurred in the Past.
The Gustavus Department of Music presents 10th Wave Chamber Collective in concert. The performance is open to the public and free of charge. About the performers: 10th Wave is a Twin Cities-based chamber music collective that explores bringing engaging and interdisciplinary classical new music to performance spaces inside and outside the normative setting. Because we believe music has the ability to create a shared experience, we present programmatic concerts that explore various topics and social issues -such as world events, mental health, and loss- in performance halls. Always searching for innovative ways to connect with the community, we also perform groovy minimalist music in bars, breweries, and cafes - places where classical music is not often heard and for an audience new to the sounds and textures of instrumental compositions. 10th Wave concerts series in performance halls are intentional to build a community that breaks down the barriers of social class, race, and ethnicity that is accessible for all who come to listen. Formed in December 2017, 10th Wave is a collective ensemble of professional musicians on instruments including but not limited to: clarinet, violin, cello, piano, marimba, percussion, and voice. 10th Wave has been featured in several music festivals in the Twin Cities: The Stone Arch Bridge Festival and Highland Music Festival, and at performance spaces within restaurants and breweries: Boom Island Brewing Co., The Red Sea Minneapolis, Black Dog Cafe, Underground Music Cafe, and Studio Z. We endeavor to bring high quality chamber music to the Twin Cities that is closely tied to current issues, and to inspire young musicians and non-musicians to be leaders in their own communities.
