Liquid Music Series: Grand Band

  • St Paul, MN Ordway Concert Hall, 345 Washington St St Paul, MN 55102 (map)

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents Grand Band, a “supergroup” (New York Times) of New York City-based pianists who have joined forces to create a powerful piano sextet. The unconventional ensemble commissions new works and arrangements for their unique instrumentation and brings a wholly distinct sonic experience to audiences. Each one an accomplished performer in their own right, the combination of their musical prowess results in mesmerizing performances that have been described as “a miracle of ensemble coordination and sonic delight” (Kalamazoo Gazette). Grand Band’s Twin Cities debut includes the world premiere of Degenerate Psalms by the “consistently inventive and surprising” (New York Times), “thoroughly original” (Wall Street Journal) composer Missy Mazzoli.
