The Vail Series presents contemporary classical ensemble Eighth Blackbird. What a year this ensemble has had! Eighth Blackbird kicked off its 20th anniversary in 2016, quickly garnering a fourth GRAMMY Award as well as the prestigious MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, followed by Chamber Music America’s inaugural Visionary Award, and Musical America’s Ensemble of the Year (2017). AND Billboard magazine just issued ‘Top 10 Reasons the NEA should not be defunded.’ Eighth Blackbird is on the list.
Eighth blackbird is a remarkable band of six virtuosi who together champion the most interesting music of their generation. They will take audiences on a journey through the most exciting new music territory, infusing the experience with adventure, humor and discovery. There isn’t a hotter group on the scene today, and we’re thrilled to have them at Denison for the 2017/2018 Vail Series finale.
