  • Minneapolis, MN Machine Shop, 300 2nd St SE Minneapolis, MN 55414 (map)

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents “quietly transfixing” violinist, singer, producer and composer Emily Wells, known for her varied use of classical and modern instrumentation, deft approach to live sampling, and “dramatic, meticulous and gothic songs” (New York Times) that blend “traditionalism with electronic ambiance” (NPR). Speaking to our cultural moment, The World Is Too ____ For You includes new work inspired by hymns, imagined eulogies for loved ones and arrangements of Wells’ musicby Michi Wiancko. The performance also reveals new video work designed by Wells, drawing heavily from contemporary dance.
