Two shows in March start our 2015 season. We received wonderful support in our recent Indiegogo fund-drive, and we’ve got a busy spring season to show for it!
Diagenesis (soprano Heather Barnes and cellist Jennifer Bewerse) offer a program of commissions and quirky classics on 3/6 at the Lilypad in Cambridge. [diagenesis on fb]
Boston Modern Brass returns (joined by C. Neil Parsons) to preach the cause of new brass music at Boston Conservatory’s Seully Hall on 3/17. [bmb on fb]
We can’t wait to bring these two amazing ensembles to you—join us!
EQ//Offstage is back, and we’re thrilled!
Begun last season, Offstage events are separate from our main season concerts—they are more casual, salon-style events where attendees socialize, relax, imbibe, and take in some fantastic music. All events are BYOB, and free, so bring some friends! Watch as we announce more EQ//Offstage events throughout the season.
This season, we start with KO’FA, an impetuous and daring duo of saxophone (Kent O’Doherty) and drums (Frank Aveni). Incorporating their diverse musical backgrounds, KO’FA will play and improvised set that promises to offer the continually unexpected. We hope you can make it!

Equilibrium opens our fourth season with a brash and daring program from Sound Energy, a string trio taking on today’s most adventurous composers. Micah Brightwell, violin; Ashe Gordon, viola; and Rob Mayes, cello, bring their deep musicality to a program of music by Boston’s Marti Epstein and John Aylward, as well as Jeffrey Mumford and Alfred Schnittke.

Semiosis Quartet takes the string quartet to the edge with Henryk Górecki’s intensely instrospective String Quartet no. 2 ‘Quasi una Fantasia’, John Zorn’s brutal The Dead Man, and local composer Stefanie Lubkowski’s reserved and enticingly patient This is the light of autumn….
Trumpeter/composers Jason Huffman and Travis Alford have paired up for our second Composer-on-Stage event, part of a mini-series which highlights composers’ unique interpretations. This program features a wide range of works, from Stravinsky and Wolpe, to explorations by Huffman and Alford themselves. They are joined by Yoni Kahn on horn, Zoe Kemmerling on viola, and Emily Koh on bass.
See you there!
